Hi - I have a system with two IDE drives on it and I need more disk space than I have . The current situation is :
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Avail Capacity Mounted on /dev/ad0s1a 257998 36308 201052 15% / /dev/ad0s1f 498398 424568 33960 93% /usr /dev/ad3s1e 7939980 6610848 693934 91% /usr/home /dev/ad0s1e 226734 2542 206054 1% /var procfs 4 4 0 100% /proc I would like to swop the 1Gb ad0 drive for a larger drive. As you can see the other IDE drive is almost full. Can anyone suggest how to move what's on ad0 to a larger disk ? I wondered about 1. disconnecting the ad3 and putting a new drive in its place 2. then (in some way) backuping up the entirety of ad0, restoring it to the 'fake' ad3 3. then taking out the original ad0 and replacing with ad3 4. then (in some way) persuading machine to boot off new, larget drive, with root on it ... would that work ? Can anyone fill in the details ? It it wouldn't work can anyone suggset an alternative bearing in in mind I can only have two drives and the largest each can be is 8Gb (old BIOS). regards richard shea. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
