growpart - extend a partition in a partition table to fill available space



growpart partition
rewrite partition table so that partition takes up all the space it can
-h | --help print Usage an exit
--fudge F if part could be resized, but change would be
less than 'F', do not resize (default: 20480)
-N | --dry-run only report what would be done, show new 'sfdisk -d'
-v | --verbose increase verbosity / debug


-h | --help
Show usage and exit

-N | --dry-run
Only report what would be done

--fudge COUNT
Only modify partition table if the given partition would grow more than COUNT
sectors (512 bytes). The default value is 20480 indicating that no change will be
made unless more than 10M of space would be gained.

-v | --verbose
Give more information to stderr.


DISK The device or disk image to operate on

The number of the partition to resize (counting from 1)


Rewrite a partition table in a disk or disk image so that the given partition takes up as
much space as it can. After running, the partition will end at the end of the disk, or at
the beginning of the next partition.


Extend partition 1 in /dev/sda to fill empty space until end of disk or next partition
growpart /dev/sda 1

Extend partition 2 in disk image my.image.
growpart my.image 2


The exit status is 0 if the partition was successfully grown or if --dry-run was specified
and it could be grown. The exit status is 1 if the partition could not be grown due to
lack of available space. The exit status is 2 if an error occurred.
