    resizing cloned partitions

    So I did a full install of Ubuntu (all default settings) 12.04 to a 40GB drive. I've since cloned the drive (full clone, incl. boot sector, etc.) to a 120GB drive. But now, I've got about 80GB of unused space since the partition sizes were kept the same.

    Can I safely resize the ext4 partition (now ~30GB) using gparted on a livecd, without having to deal with any funkyness?

    Thanks!

    You should be able to do that without problem. Keep in mind that both share the same UUID so both cannot be plugged in until one is changed.

    thanks for the respnses, guys. luckily the ext4 partition is a logical, separate from the extended partition that has the swap partition inside. will post back if anything goes awry.
