I have a hard drive of 150gb. I recently cloned a vmdk as physical onto this hard disk. My question is, because the vmdk was 90gb of partition space, the rest of my 150gb space is not shown as a partition. Do anyone know how to recover the rest of the space as partition?
fdisk or some other partition editor of your choice and add some new partitions. It may also be possible to resize your existing partitions (and the resident filesystems). You can use
parted to resize partitions. If you’ve got an ext2/3 filesystem on it, you can use
resize2fs to resize the filesystem after you’ve resized the partition.
