Resize Media Partition
At launch, Tailor will show all active partitions on your device.
- In the Select Partition area, tap the "USB (media)" partition.
- Tap the green "Unmount Partition" button to take the partition offline prior to resizing operations.
- The green button should change to "Check Filesystem". Tap it. This will begin a filesystem check to guarantee consistency before resizing operations.
- Once the filesystem check finishes, you should be presented with a text box. Enter the new desired size for your media partition (in MB) and click the red "Resize Partition" button.
- Once the resizing operation has completed, you can remount your media partition by choosing the mount action.
No known bugs.
