I have two 750MB hard drives in the computer.
One is divided into 2 partitions, one is a single partition.
Is there a GUI pgm that will show space usage on both of these disks,
on all the partitions?
After reading a lot about why newer 4096 byte physical block hard drives should be partitioned taking care of alignment (Linux on 4KB-sector disks: Practical advice, What is partition alignment and why whould I need it?, Why do I have to “align” the partitions on my new Western Digital hard drive?, I was convinced to make sure my new disk was properly partitioned and formatted with 4096 byte block
I have several disks that I've accumulated (for space) on my system, and would like to consolidate these to a single large hard drive. My plan is the use PING or Clonezilla to clone my largest (main 500GB) hard drive to a 1 - 2 TB hard drive, and I think these can also move the other partitions sdbX, sdcX and sddX to the same hard drive, but I have to tell the system I did this or it won't boot.
Moving from FC17 to FC18 I decided to free some space (taken from swap and the root partition).
Both partitions were created in an extended partition, ending up with 2GB of free space in the begining of the Extd. partition and additional 1.6GB in the end.
There are other partitions (active and used by linux) in between, home, root, etc.
