Re: Resizing with gparted for Fedora installation



Hello,

  It seems to me that there is no need for defrag; and there **is** a
change between resizing with ntfsresize and gparted.

  According to "man ntfsresize":

"Defragmentation is NOT required prior  to  resizing  because  the
 program can relocate any data if needed, without risking data integrity."

and also:

"Similarly  to  other  command  line filesystem resizers, ntfsresize doesn’t
 manipulate the size of the partitions, hence to do that you must  use
 a disk partitioning tool as well, for example fdisk(8)."


Regards,
Rami Rosen
