Manjaro Troubleshoot


I have a /dev/sda5 file under the "/" mount point that is running out of space and was looking to allocate more to it. Unfortunately, changing an already created partition has a high chance of corrupting pre-existing files during the time of expansion. Is there a safer way or will I just have to keep deleting things until i am eventually left no choice but to risk expanding it?

    Difficult to give you advice without knowing more about how the drive is allocated. Whether there are partitions in front of this one that could be deleted or not. Just as a suggestion of the things i'd do. I might make another partition or another drive then symlink the previous location to it. So the program in case it can't be changed, still targets sda5, but ends up elsewhere.
