    this is actual situation of my system, but I don't can use fdisk and cfdisk, can you like proceed for increase root (/) partition?



    Disk /dev/sda: 107.3 GB, 107374182400 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 13054 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

    Disk /dev/sdb doesn't contain a valid partition table

    I think there are some tools available such as partition-magic which can help you with these kind of issues but frankly telling you dont go for that.

    You can either move your highly utilized drives on new space such as var , usr or any other to reduce disk space utilization.

    Hello :)

    I do not recommend utilizing fdisk if you are not familiar with manually modifying the partitions on your system. You risk data loss if you make a mistake. Instead, I recommend consulting with a qualified system administrator or data center to have them complete this for you.

    Thank you.
