       fatresize —     Resize an FAT16/FAT32 volume non-destructively


       fatresize [-s SIZE]  [device]


       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.


       These programs follow the usual GNU  command  line  syntax,  with  long
       options  starting  with  two  dashes  (‘-’).   A  summary of options is
       included below.  For a complete description, see the Info files.

       -h           --help
                 Show summary of options.

       -s           --size
                 Resize volume to SIZE[k|M|G|ki|Mi|Gi] bytes

       -i           --info
                 Show volume information

       -p           --progress
                 Show progress

       -q           --quite
                 Be quite

       -v           --verbose
                 Verbose (not version)


       fatresize -s 2G /dev/evms/hdb2

       fatresize -q -s 3G /dev/hde6

       fatresize -i /dev/hdg3

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


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