Oh, sorry, read the name off the wrong history event. @Qetesh that applies to you then :-)

@HalosGhost I reverted your edit. partprobe -s does not do what you think it does. The kernel will not pick up a resize of a partition which is in use. partprobe -s only works if the partition was in use during the resize (so when fdisk notified the kernel it failed), but it is no longer.

comment Want to setup a dropbox sync drive
What you're wanting to do can't be done exactly as you want. For the local system to back it up, the block device has to be mounted. If you expose it over USB as a block device, that other machine may mount it. You can't have 2 systems mount the same block device. Corruption will ensue. If you mounted it locally, and then exposed the filesystem (instead of the block device) via NFS/CIFS/etc, that would work.

@SF. If you want shell, seq is hardly the 'right' way. echo {1..50} (or printf) would arguably be the shell way.
