I finally migrated from Windows to Linux, and I chose Linux Lite (based on Lubuntu) as my first attempt, through dual-booting my PC. I loved using Linux, so I decided to steal most of the space of my Windows partition and give it to my ext4 partition using gparted Live Disk.
The problem is that I couldn't simply expand the partition, I needed to move it first (to the left) and then expand it to all the unallocated space. gparted does not recommend it and mentions I might not be able to boot after moving the root partition.
My boot partition is still the Windows partition. So I tried to restart the computer normally and everything went fine, I booted to the Linux partition.
But I thought the system was a little slower than usual and for the first time it froze (I could move my mouse, but all else was unresponsive). I waited for an hour but it stayed the same. So I turned off the power to the computer.
My question is: I thought the only problem I had when resizing was booting, but is it necessary to do
fsck or a similar procedure to verify the integrity or fix errors? Also, should I run
Thanks a lot!
