Resize partition fat32 Subject description: Only command line
I copied a fat 32 image of 2GB on a 32GB usb key.
Of course, there is a lot of empty space on the usb key ...
I would like to extend the partion (and file system) of the copied image to all media.
- I do not want to use GParted.
- I will only want to do it on the command line.
I saw that it existed "fatresize", but this command no longer seems maintained and despite the updates, I always get error messages when I try to use it (segmentation error or other messages which I do not understand very well the meaning (my English is very bad sorry-fortunately google translation exists )
I tried (after updating) the parted command.
Here too it does not seem possible to extend a fat32 partition.
What's in the key is not important (I can easily erase and recreate it with the "dd" command) and it's a test key.
Can you help me solve this problem, if possible with sample orders or other orders to use ...?
Interesting. Which puppy are you using? I have not tried a command line tool to resize partitions (I have always had success with GParted and like the way it shows me what's happening visually) but might try later and show you what version of these command line tools my slacko puppies have. The partition probably has to be unmounted first, and maybe the rest of the drive unallocated.
My fat32 partition is 1GB, I remember when it was over 2GB then scandisk in Dos would always claim the parts beyond 2GB were corrupted, I think I eventually found a patched version that worked beyond 2GB - maybe it was a legacy problem from fat16 limits.
