fatresize -s 2G /dev/evms/hdb2

fatresize -q -s max /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.
