       growpart - extend a partition in a partition table to fill available space



       growpart partition
          rewrite partition table so that partition takes up all the space it can
           -h | --help      print Usage an exit
                --fudge F   if part could be resized, but change would be
                            less than 'F', do not resize (default: 20480)
           -N | --dry-run   only report what would be done, show new 'sfdisk -d'
           -v | --verbose   increase verbosity / debug


       -h | --help
              Show usage and exit

       -N | --dry-run
              Only report what would be done

       --fudge COUNT
              Only  modify  partition  table  if  the  given partition would grow more than COUNT
              sectors (512 bytes).  The default value is 20480 indicating that no change will  be
              made unless more than 10M of space would be gained.

       -v | --verbose
              Give more information to stderr.


       DISK   The device or disk image to operate on

              The number of the partition to resize (counting from 1)


       Rewrite  a partition table in a disk or disk image so that the given partition takes up as
       much space as it can.  After running, the partition will end at the end of the disk, or at
       the beginning of the next partition.


       Extend partition 1 in /dev/sda to fill empty space until end of disk or next partition
                 growpart /dev/sda 1

       Extend partition 2 in disk image my.image.
                 growpart my.image 2


       The exit status is 0 if the partition was successfully grown or if --dry-run was specified
       and it could be grown. The exit status is 1 if the partition could not  be  grown  due  to
       lack of available space. The exit status is 2 if an error occurred.
