Migrating from 64GB SD to 200GB SD. How to resize partition?



  • Hi,
    i backed up my recalbox 6.0 sd card. Now I want to migrate to a bigger card. When I restore this image to my 200 GB card it uses only 64 GB. Is there a way to easily resize the roms partition? Is there a shell command?

    Thank you!

    @marcdk If you are in Linux, use gparted. If you are on Windows, you need a specific program to resize partitions, whichever one serves, one of the most popular is partition magic. Another option is to download a Linux image, burn it to a USB flash drive, make a "live CD", boot the USB stick without installing Linux (there is an option to test the system without installing it on the PC), and use gparted .
