All I want to do is delete
disk0s9 and have
disk0s4 resize and take up the empty space.
I want to
- Delete container
- I don't want the either volume in partitions
disk0s8to absorb the space.
- I want the volume (
disk0s4) after it to increase in size, appropriately.
Every time I attempt to delete / resize using the Diskutil in High Sierra (I miss Yosemite's), the internal disk preceding the disk gets the space :(
/dev/disk0 (internal, physical): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *251.0 GB disk0 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1 2: Apple_HFS High Sierra 70.0 GB disk0s2 3: Apple_Boot Recovery HD 650.0 MB disk0s8 4: Apple_APFS Container disk4 19.9 GB disk0s9 5: Apple_APFS Container disk1 159.5 GB disk0s4 6: Apple_Boot Boot OS X 650.0 MB disk0s7
Every time I try and resize the partition / remove it,
disk0s2 gets the additional space.
ASK: How do I resize the last portion, while maintain data and not doing a backup / recreate mess?
I know there has gotta be a good way to resize the partitions without having to back everything up and remake from scratch. I just can't seem to master the new Diskutil when it comes to resizing partitions non-standard ways.
Thanks in advance!
