    I am having GParted trouble


    Ok here goes I am trying to create free space on my Drive and Cparted is not doing anything other than moving the 7MB of it I already have. Any suggestions?

    When you boot into Gparted, are you actually trying to shrink a partition? Because you should be able to just slide the target partition to the left or right, and hit 'apply'?

    You might want to try running gparted from a liveCD such as PartedMagic. Doing so helps you to get around a few issues that you can run into when running it directly from a hard drive.
