|On my home Linux box I want to shrink my root 1.8 TB partition (
ext4). Even unmounted gparted says "1.8 TB minimum size". And the GUI, accordingly, refuses to shrink it.
Googling til the end of elephanting times led me to
resize2f2 how dangerous is that, in your experience?
And just trying to wrap my head around it is there "one filesystem size and one partition size?"
I actually want to reinstall the OS, and have poor experiences of upgrading. I have 0.6 TB of data, that I want to copy to a non-boot partition. and do not fancy the idea of buying storage to be used for an hour or two only. So yes I admit I am cheap and lazy, and I will never ever install Linux with such monolithic partitioning.
Thanks : )
