hi again, all! I'm tearing hair again, trying to mess with some partitions on an internal (not Boot) drive. please take a look at the attached screenshot, will you? "AV Arch" used to be 1 TB, I downsized it to 750 GB. That worked, but I'm now trying to enlarge "SoftArch" from 500 GB to "750 GB" and I can't because it seems that, even though "AV" was successfully reduced, it seems to still be holding on to about 250 GB of space - the space that "Soft" would need to expand? any thoughts?
