I have a vps with CentOS release 5.9 and my hosting provider upgraded the vps with additional disks, two free spaces

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

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 12793 102759741 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 12794 13054 2096482+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris

Disk /dev/sdb: 214.7 GB, 214748364800 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 26108 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

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

Disk /dev/sdc: 107.3 GB, 107374182400 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 13054 cylinders

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.
