    As you can see in the picture above. System-monitor and Gparted are Screenshoted at the same time.

    How can that bee? How can I fix it?

    It is on Ubuntu 10.04LTS

    Edit. Before my change the /-partition was filled with around 18GB (as system-monitor show), so there should have being only the half /-partion, filled with files as it was extended to 37GB.

    Seems very strange.

    Just to add a third choice what does this show?
    df -h

    And to see sector details:
    sudo fdisk -lu /dev/sda
    sudo parted /dev/sda unit s print

    I haveeeeeeeeealso allready made a couple of reboots.

    Cheers. To morrow I make backups. Seems that Unison dont copy hidden files... I have ssh on the backup machine, so it shoud be able to copy all files and maybe conserve the meta data on the files?


    cheers

    Re: Change partition with gparted. System shows old partition-size

    Have you backed up your personal files to another drive? Do it if you haven't and it is possible!

    Then I suggest that you exit gparted and reboot the computer. What will you see after reboot?

    I've had issues with programs not knowing that the partition size has changed too. I don't remember which ones were the problem, but I do remember that a reboot gets it sorted out.

    Did you try making the changes from the running system or from a Live session?

    Re: Change partition with gparted. System shows old partition-size

    It's not possible to umount filesystem used by system /root and /home. I use a 12.04LTS 64-bit live session from SD-card. Could that be a problem to use 12.04 and 64bit on a 10.04LTS 32-bit?

    Need to make a bigger / cos it full, but I will soon upgrade to 12.04LTS because 10.04LTS soon get to old. I have a graphical problem with the 12.04 live session (sceen showed duoble in the edges.

    I do not think so. If anything using gparted from a 12.04 version has a lot of improvements over the 10.04 version.

    Re: Change partition with gparted. System shows old partition-size

    Not only is your / full, your /home is full too. With both partitions over 90% used your performance will decrease and there's nothing you can do about that by just repartitioning your drive. You either need a major cleanup – which for most people doesn't work for exactly the same reason as for why they filled up their hard drive in the first place – or a bigger drive.
