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.

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.
