I want to increase / (sda1) and the first thought is to delete the swap account (15GB ram) and transfer it to sda1.
Another option is to get a new ssd and set ~50 GB for / and the rest leave it as it is.
Does anyone have another suggestion?
Thanks in advance.
I’d recommend this. It had the benefit of greatly improved speed as well. But I’d recommend a bigger
/ as that leaves more wiggling room. I have a 250GB SSD myself, and it works like a charm. See below for more details:
/dev/sda6 and the swap area before and the grey area before that look like a mbr type partition scheme.
everything beyond /dev/sda1 is on extended partition
the grey thing is in your way
sda1 is a normal partition, sda2 with everything else in it is an extended partition - you can’t separate out the swap from it and give it to sda1
You’d probably need to move/shrink the the whole sda2 (if that is possible) before you have space on sda1 to grow it.
where is /home???
likely on /
as in: no separate /home
or on a different drive …
It is how I do it, too - no need to decide beforehand how much to give to /home
/home is on a separate hard drive. See below:
$ lsblk NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINTS sda 8:0 0 4.5T 0 disk └─sda1 8:1 0 4.5T 0 part /home/mirdarthos/Downloads /home/mirdarthos/virtualbox /home/mirdarthos/Video /home/mirdarthos/Pictures /home/mirdarthos/Music /home/mirdarthos/KeePass /home/mirdarthos/Documents /home/mirdarthos/Boostnote /mnt/5TB sdb 8:16 0 3.6T 0 disk └─sdb1 8:17 0 3.6T 0 part nvme0n1 259:0 0 232.9G 0 disk ├─nvme0n1p1 259:1 0 7.8G 0 part [SWAP] ├─nvme0n1p2 259:2 0 224.6G 0 part / └─nvme0n1p3 259:3 0 500M 0 part /boot/efi
In the past I have done a lot of crazy things like this…deleting the swap and then moving it to / with success and without any problems but now I will probably buy a new ssd and do it from the beginning “as it should be”
Ok! Thanks guys the decision has been made…
Normally, you need a SSD with a size of 512GB for each OS.
250GB are perfect for me.
