  • Linux Lite: 3.0 64bit

  • MEMORY: 16Gb
I'm sure before I start to load LL I set two partition at 250gb and an 80gb for LL
The 250gb were left at NTFS I was going to change them later.

Now I'm looking to change size I can only see one drive with partition of 461gb.
I can't resize or unmount at the OS LL is using this drive.

The setting are grayed out I had this before I just had to unmount.

Using Gparted this should see the other NTFS partition right?
Is the easy and quickest way to format and reload LL again setting partition 80gb for LL

I have looked at youtube before I started this question.





Thanks
Lazy typer LL = Linux Lite

See what else Linux Lite can do.
I think X kill is cool :)

I wouldn't. Ext file system is my preferred file system during a install. Even storage.

Not sure what you are saying. So just a guess here. You need to use a live session, not a installed session to mess with drives.
That is because gparted does not like messing with internal partitions on the drive you are running.
Like I said. Just guessing that is what you are doing.

Edit: A reinstall is not necessary. Just boot a live session. Do your thing. Then reboot. I would probably do a check of LL installed / partition in gparted
though before a reboot to make sure my changes did not break anything. It (check) is in the right click menu in gparted. You need to unmount the drive being checked before gparted will l;et you use it.
