I wanted to extend my
/ partition from 20GB to 100GB by taking 80GB from the
- My /home is on
So I used
gparted and moved the front of
sda5 right to subtract the 80GB, but i didn't know it would move all of my
sda5 data 80gb ahead, and that this process would take 10hours.
I have a weak internet connection to my server and if the
ssh connection gets dropped all the data could potentially get lost as I am doing this in rescue mode using
qemu-kvm and forgot to start
screen before starting this process.
Is there any way to cancel the resize of my 2TB drive without it being corrupted?
Because in the meantime, I figured out it would have been much faster if I moved
sda3 to the end of the disk after shrinking
sda5 by 80GB.
EDIT: The process is completed. I used repytr to move the process from SSH to screen and god it worked fine.
