This has been asked here, Why I'm seeing a lock besides the partition I'm trying to modify with gparted?, but I'm having problems.
These two partitions both have ext4 as their file system. They are both unmounted. Swap space is swapped off:
I want to extend sda1 with sda3. I have no data on sda3
However, when I click resize/move on sda1 I get this:
It's as big as it can go!
It's the same story if sda3 is empty unallocated space:
sda1 is as big as it can be. How do I extend it into the unallocated space?
Worth mentioning that the screen shots are from a liveCD containing GParted's iso.
I gather I need to move unallocated space next to the drive that needs to be extended. I cannot click and drag sda2 containing swap space an inch.
This liveCD shouldn't be using it but it's the best answer I've had:
I can extend the swap space no problem. What does this mean?
