Expand the share partition after cloning.



  • I have cloned my 32GB MicroSD card which already had a full setup of recalbox on it to a new 64GB card. How can I now manually expand the share partition to use the extra space for more roms? Thanks in advance for any advice.



  • Any one have any experience with this? BUMP

    Hi Gparted on linux will resize your partitions.



  • yes but how? I have ZERO linux knowledge. I was hoping for some step-by-step assistance in resizing the share partition. I looked up examples on google but they were based or raspian wheezy with only two partitions. we have more than two and it's confusing to figure out which steps have to change how if you don't understand the OS at all in the first place.

    Sorry maybe someone can help you while hanging around, or ask for help on irc. I can't make a tutorial for that 🙂



  • Eric, I am rather Linux challenged and have not had any luck using Gparted or Windows partition tools.  I went from 32GB => 64GB => 128GB using the method below:   (When I have time I will try and document a walk through.)   So here is what I did since I used all types of utilities to try and expand. I used http://www.diskinternals.com/linux-reader/ from my Windows machine, then copied all the game partition ROMs and BIOS etc. Then put a fresh install on a 128GB Sandisk microSD. Moved all my files back to the newly created SSD.
