I'm new to linux and raspi, I filled my SD card with Debian, Apache, PHP, Mysql, etc. .., it works fine, now I only have 100MB free, on 8GB card
I have a debian install on VirtualBox in Windows Vista as host with a problem, gparted seems fine and sees the 3 partitions of my SD but GRUB does not work even if you reinstall it.
Before I use GParted. It is necessary after moving the swapfile partition with GParted to use GRUB?.
Another way to resize partitions?
A simple method for save the SD card contents?

The raspi-config script on wheezy (debian) has a re-sizeing built into it you may find the answer there. ;)

gparted is super useful for this but you can also potentially screw up everything ever. haha
