I have 480 GB SSD it currently has the following partitions 256MB EFI partition, 16GB SWAP, and 40GB CentOS 7 see details from lshw below. I want to use the remaining 400GB of unused space on the drive as an iSCSI target.
Hi, I have recently bought a Dell inspiron, and I have experiencing several dificulties on partitioning the disk. I had to deal (for the first time) with ISR tachnology and RAID partitions, and after all I managed to dual boot the machine with windows7 and fedora 17.
I'm working on a personal project to regularly (monthly-ish) traverse my hard disk and shred (overwrite with zeros) any blocks on the disk not currently allocated to any inode(s).
C seemed like the most logical language to do this in given the low-level nature of the project, but I am not sure how best to find the unused blocks in the filesystem. I've found some questions around S.O.
