Enlarge partition on SSD

I want to enlarge the volume of partition /dev/sda5 ext4 (/,/run/timeshift/backup) with the volume of an unused partition.
How to realize this ?
Thanks in advance for your reply.
Best regards.

If it is a partition on a different device - you cannot.

If the unused partition is immediately adjecent to the right ot the partition you want to extend then you can.

Just open the partition manager - remove the unused partition and add the reclaimed space to the preceeding partition.

And please don’t forget your backup ! before resizing a partition.
