    Unhappy Resizing software RAID

    Hi
    I'm using software RAID with this configure:
    100 MiB RAID 1 boot
    1 GiB RAID 1 swap
    30 GiB RAID 0 root
    Rest RAID 0 home
    I'm using 2 hard drive with capacity of 500 GiB, I want to resize root partition to 12 GiB without losing my data on home partition, Can I unmount root and home partition from RAID and resize them without losing data? If not please give me a method? TNX

    no matter what anyone says: before running a partitioner it is always
    good practice to make a backup of all data you don't want to risk..

    in fact: it is *always* wise to have at least one off machine back up
    of all important data....some folks say that you must also have a
    geographically dispersed copy....so, (say) if your house burns down
    you still have a copy..

    ymmv

    I wouldn't mind having a backup copy of my house.
