direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Wow! I did it without partitioning the disk and it’s working. Thanks a lot for your help.


Didn’t know you can do it this way. There are something you can learn every moment…


OK, Yannis: thanks a lot again. It’s sync’ing now and it’s going to take 13 hours. I was thinking on bringing it up as StandAlone and copy everything from one disk to another and then resync from the small one to the bigger one, but it was going to take a few days… Much better this solution.


We can close the case now, if no one has another comment.

That's the case then. What about leaving the new disk unpartitioned and using it as /dev/sdb (instead of /dev/sdb1) ?


Otherwise I guess 2 options remain:


- Buy a bigger disk

- Shrink the original in order to match the size of the new (dangerous):
