Distribute space with CloneZilla?
I would like to give my C: drive (which is 98% full) some free space.
The order of partitions on my drive is like this:
(primary) c: | (extended((logical) e: ) | (primary) d: | 15 GB free space
c: is the system partition
e: is the personal data partition
d: is an empty 15 GB partition I made in the hope of merging it with c:
Since c: is on the left and needs to be aligned with the 15 GB free space,
I would have to move c: to the right, so that the free space is right next to it.
This however, could break my Windows (7) partition, so I won't touch it.
What I can do is backup my extended partition where e: resides in (device-image, then partition->image) and delete it after backing it up (inculding d: ). Then, c: is aligned to the free space, I suppose.
My question is:
Could this give me problems if I try to restore e: later (putting it on the right of c: )? I have had Clonezilla boot USB stick go 'kernel panic' on me because for some reason it didn't recognize the drive structure anymore. It only worked after I reinstalled Clonezilla onto the USB stick.
So, would this approach work? C: is really running out of space.
