Hi,

I thought an additional function in the partition:

Extend the specified partition. Then a dialog box appears and we can choose the specified parition to expand the size of the HD.

What do you think ?

    Sure. This can be done by GParted. You can use GParted live or DRBL live to do that.

    Hi Steven,

    I know. Thank you.

    But I work in an SME (small and medium enterprises) and therefore my boss does not PXE at the moment and we are working with Clonezilla Live. So for mass cloning, ok with DRBL and for a single user, ok to use GParted after cloning.

    But for example in my case we are about 5 to work with Clonezilla Live, it would make sense to have such an option in order to keep speed in the cloning itself.

    Or for example, always in the case of use in SMEs, where there are multiple partitions and we want to clone to a larger HD to remain fast, able to choose one or more partitions to expand.

    This is to avoid having to reboot and use GParted for each clone.

    What do you think?

    So have you try DRBL live? It includes Clonezilla live, Clonezilla SE, and GParted:
