I've recently deleted a partition around
8GB in size. This partition was located after the main partition, but seems to not be critical as I can still boot the OS and run all the applications.
The boot process now takes an extra two-minutes to complete, displaying the following messages:
Gave up waiting for suspend/resume device
/dev/sda4: clean, .../... files .../... blocks
[ ***] A start job is running for dev-disk-by\.....\....\... .device
My question is:
What was this second partition, and how can restore or recreate it?
