I've been wanting to switch over to Fedora KDE for a while, but since Kubunu stopped booting earlier, I decided that I might as well switch now. I need to shrink the kubuntu partition size and install the new Fedora partition. Then manually transfer my data over to Fedora. Then delete my Kubuntu partition, then expand my Fedora partition to take up the whole drive.
GParted is stuck on the shrinking step for the last 25 hours trying to shrink my 442GB Windows 8 oartition to 426GB. This partition is on my SATA HDD and I aḿ only modifying the end of the partition in order to put my new Ubuntu after it.
Should I just keep waiting or is there anything else I can do to speed up or cancel (without data loss) the process?
I recently switched over from Windows 7 to Fedora 19
But I am having a few problems trying to move my Fedora installation to another partition.
I had a small 39GB lvm2 pv partition setup which I installed Fedora onto, all went as planned and I can run Fedora as normal.
Hello! I have fedora 11 and window installed. I reduced the windows partition in order to enlarge the fedora. The fedora partition is widespread, and puts gparted lvm2. I can not enlarge nor palimpset or with gparted, I can only delete or format it.
Can anyone help me?

As a VPS administrator, I've shrunken and cloned partitions (or disk images) to perform backups. The shrinking of the partition adds a few extra minutes of downtime, but reduces the amount of total space used towards the quota.
this is the image showing partitions on my hard drive. I am reading linux from scratch and so i need to create a dedicated partition to make my machine. sda1 is alloted to root but it uses only 3.45 GB of about 15 GB. Rest ~ 11GB is free. So, I need to shrink sda1 and make a dedicated partition. This is my only option as only 1 MB is free on the disk and i need approx 3 GB.
