This is what I have below, I added the labels to the right of how I'm using them now and they were setup during install. The whole disk is used for FreeBSD. I know that I have 100GB of free space left on the c: partition. What I'd like to do is take 20GB of that free space only and make mount it. That 100MB is for remote backup of some clients, I have one now that will be sending up to 20GB. Next week, I may create another 5GB for another customer. I like the idea of having a separate partition for each customers data. 8 partitions: # size offset fstype [fsize bsize bps/cpg] a: 4096000 0 4.2BSD 2048 16384 28552 # / 2000MB b: 4139008 4096000 swap c: 312448122 0 unused 0 0 # "raw" part, don't edit d: 40960000 8235008 4.2BSD 2048 16384 28552 # /usr 20000MB e: 20480000 49195008 4.2BSD 2048 16384 28552 # /var 10000MB f: 2048000 69675008 4.2BSD 2048 16384 28552 # /tmp 1000MB g: 35923968 71723008 4.2BSD 2048 16384 28552 # /home 17541MB Anyway, I just want to take part of the free space, not all of it, right now, and want to be sure about what I'm doing. How do I get just that 20GB setup? Using your example, is this what I need to do in the editor: # size offset fstype [fsize bsize bps/cpg] > c: 71681967 0 unused 0 0 > h: 40960000 0 4.2BSD 1024 8192 16 Thanks for the great instructions. -- Robert _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
