I installed arch linux and figured I might want to have another distro or 5, so I left over half my hard drive space unallocated. Due to the fact that I wouldn't know how to add another distro to my bootloader(gummiboot) if I wanted to and that I am fine with only having arch, I would like to use the remaining space for my home partition. I didn't make it an LVM partition so I don't think it would be as easy as booting from a LiveCD and resizing.
Would backing up my home folder contents, deleting the home partition, creating a larger one and restoring the files provide the result that I want? If not, what would be the best way of doing this?
Here is the output of the lsblk command on my system:
[$user@arch ~]$ lsblk NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT sda 8:0 0 298.1G 0 disk ├─sda1 8:1 0 512M 0 part ├─sda2 8:2 0 15G 0 part / └─sda3 8:3 0 120G 0 part /home
And then there's 160GB of free space.
