Adjusting Partition without Reinstallation
It has been quite a while since I posted something here.
I tried to search if this question has been answered already but i cannot seem to find the right thread.
I am maintaining a home server (kind of a sandbox for myself) installed with Ubuntu 8.04.2.
I wish to repartition a partition previously set during the installation but I am afraid to risk doing it without proper consultation.
The server contains valuable personal files, data, and objects that I cannot risk to lose.
Please advise if anyone has tried to repartition an ubuntu partition without reinstalling the entire OS.
If anyone has done it, please advise how to proceed.
