How can I change the partition size - Larry Harker - 10-06-2017

I am a newbie, I want to install additional applications with this project, but the disk size is too small. How can I increase the partition size?

Thank you in advance.

How to expand the RPITC partition on SD card

I use a linux partition editor called "gparted" which has a nice gui and took less than a minute to grow the partition. In the video, I download and install a bootable utility disc called "Hirens Boot CD" on a pendrive so I could boot into a linux distro from my windows PC. It's convenient for windows users since the "Hirens Boot CD" image comes with gParted already installed and it's free. Or if you are already using a linux distro, just install gParted on your own, then follow the steps at the end of the video.


Hope this helps. Good luck!
