I had these partitions on an exterior laborious drive:
/dev/disk2 (exterior, bodily): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *2.Zero TB disk2 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk2s1 2: Apple_HFS Android 63.9 GB disk2s2 3: Apple_HFS RiptideHUP 968.Zero GB disk2s3 4: Microsoft Primary Knowledge RiptideF 967.eight GB disk2s4
My goal was to delete disk2s2 after which resize disk2s3 to occupy the leftover house by deleting disk2s2.
I deleted disk2s2 utilizing this command:
diskutil erasevolume "Free Area" "" /dev/disk2s2
Now, to resize the quantity, I used:
diskutil resizevolume /dev/disk2s3 R
Nonetheless, I received this error:
Began partitioning on disk2s3 RiptideHUP Error: -69743: The brand new measurement have to be completely different than the prevailing measurement
I did a little bit of analysis and realised the free house was created earlier than
disk2s3 RiptideHUP so it can not resize itself. Is there nonetheless a method I can reclaim the Free Area?
diskutil checklist now reveals:
/dev/disk2 (exterior, bodily): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *2.Zero TB disk2 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk2s1 2: Apple_HFS RiptideHUP 968.Zero GB disk2s3 3: Microsoft Primary Knowledge RiptideF 967.eight GB disk2s4
