If you copy your personal image of an OpenELEC Raspberry Pi installation e.g. to another SD card which is larger, you might want to use the whole available space for your /storage partition. But this is not done automatically.


There are some tutorials using resize2fs and other tools, but OpenELEC provides a simpler way:

Connect via SSH / Putty, login and type:

touch /storage/.please_resize_me


Done 🙂




UPDATE 2016-04-26:

According to this OE script, it does not work any more, unfortunately.

The next best way now seems to be Gparted… or this script (untested!), or make a backup and reinstall.[:]
