[Software] Having trouble trying to resize partition in gparted.

#1 Post by luxempuff »

To put it simply, I'm trying to resize the /sdb3 partition to about 500gb, then use the rest of the space on the drive as an ntfs partition. In gparted it only lets me free up 32mb of space. I have no idea how to get this to work.

Do an internet search for resize LUKS partition. In a nutshell, you need to shrink the LVM volumes inside the partition before you can shrink it. Frankly, it probably would be easier and faster to reinstall.
