Disk Partition after Full Installation

Mon Jun 25, 2018 9:40 am

Hi Everyone,,

I installed SOLUS 3 on my laptop (Aspire 3) a few days ago and found it later that the disk only had single space for everything. Then, I tried to make new partition by resizing the main disk volume using GParted Partition Editor at first. However, it did not work well since the resize button did not active to be pushed. Is there any way for me to solve it without reinstalling my current system, as easy as did that in Windows?

Thank you for the help

You can only resize unmounted partitions. The easiest is to boot from the live iso so your partitions won't be mounted.

Hmm,, still did not yield good, may be it's all my bad.
I tried Linux Mint LIVE ISO, open KDE Partition but still I cannot make any alteration to the number of volume size.
is there anything about LVM file system??
