Resize Media Partition

At launch, Tailor will show all active partitions on your device.

  1. In the Select Partition area, tap the "USB (media)" partition.
  2. Tap the green "Unmount Partition" button to take the partition offline prior to resizing operations.
  3. The green button should change to "Check Filesystem". Tap it. This will begin a filesystem check to guarantee consistency before resizing operations.
  4. 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.
  5. Once the resizing operation has completed, you can remount your media partition by choosing the mount action.


No known bugs.
