I want to increase the space of /home. I have below partitions. Partitions are not LVM, they are standard.

  • / - 50GB
  • /home - 380GB
  • swap - 3.98GB

I have some 67GB of free space.

I want to include this in my /home(380+67) so that my home will have 447GB.

I am on Fedora20-GNOME

not using LVM to manage you disk storage, is not recommended.

Before before performing this task, we highly recommend that you backup your data. This task involves moving the start of a partition boundary, which is a high risk activity.
