NAME

fatresize --- Resize an FAT16/FAT32 volume non-destructively  

SYNOPSIS

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the fatresize

This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

Size and device is required to run. You can resize device-mapped partitions, e.g. EVMS partitions.  

BUGS

You can't resize FAT32 partition lesser than 512Mb because Windows(R) doesn't work properly with small FAT32 file system. Use FAT16.
