Christian,

as long as you agree that it wasn't LVM it is no problem ;-)

250576896 * 4KB / 1024MB/KB= 978816MB (which is a multiple of 32MB)

->

# lvreduce -L 978816M /dev/share/data

That should free 112640MB or 3520 PEs in your VG.


BTW: you should either run e2fsadm to grow/shrink the unmounted
     filesystem _and_ the logical volume in one go
     -or-
     use the filesystem resizer and lvextend/lvreduce in the correct order
     (lvextend + grow fs -or- shrink fs + lvreduce).

     Problem with the later is getting the size arguments right ;-)
