Re: Resize partitions urgent help

Pls don't crosspost to different lists, esp debian/non-debian. I don't like getting bounce messages because I'm not subscribed to them, and I usually don't reply.

Hi all,
I have a server with the following structure.

# df -hT
Filesystem    Type    Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda2  unknown    8.3G  399M  7.5G   5% /
tmpfs        tmpfs    252M     0  252M   0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda3     ext3     19G  1.8G   16G  11% /usr
/dev/hda5     ext3    9.2G  1.9G  6.9G  22% /var
/dev/hda6     ext3     12G  1.4G  9.1G  13% /home
/dev/hda7     ext3     19G   19G     0 100% /debian
/dev/hda8     ext3    6.9G   33M  6.6G   1% /work

The /dev/hda7 has been utilized 100% so i would like to increase  it to
22GB and /work to 2.6GB
Is it possible? If so how do i do it without data loss or

Its a debian machine

We hope si:-)

Plan a.
Back, repartition, restore/. This the most satisfactory without spending money.
Plan b.
New hard drive. Move data over, Mount it in /debian. This is best for the long term.
Plan c
Move the all of contents of a major subdirectory of /debian to somewhere else, and symlink to it.

If you do buy a new hard drive, consider making it your primary drive and putting all your OS on it & keeping the old one for the debian stuff. Likely, the new drive will be faster than the old, especially if you get one of the better ones.
