My current plan is to install a new QubesOS system into the big free partition - and then move stuff there. I don't have anything valuable in dom0 - so it is about moving the VMs. Is there a clean way to do that? Would it work if I just copy /var/lib/qubes into the new system? Cheers, Zbigniew

There are instructions how to resize a VM at https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/resize-root-disk-image/ - but this cannot apply to dom0 - because it requires stopping the VM and then running commands in dom0. What would be the procedure for resizing dom0 root partition? -- Zbigniew Lukasiak
