Cheers Nelz. Of course! And have to boot off my GigStick {USB Hard Drive in Unglish}

I've got 64 bit Ubuntu Studio 16.04 on mine. There's no bugs in Gparted is there? On second thoughts, of course there isn't; It's LTS!
Not updated the gig stick, since the day 16.o4 LTS came out. Any tips on things to watch out for?

Of course there are bugs in it, everything more complex than helloworld has bugs.

The main thing to watch out for is a power failure during the resizing process, that could corrupt the filesystems. Of course, anything important is backed up so that would only cost you time.

Even that is suspect if it's in a language that is new to you :wink:
