       resize_reiserfs  [ -s [+|-]size[K|M|G] ] [ -j dev ] [ -fqv
       ] device


       The resize_reiserfs tool  resizes  an  unmounted  reiserfs
       file system.  It enlarges or shrinks an reiserfs file sys­
       tem located on a device so that it will have size bytes or
       size=old_size  +(-)  size  bytes  if  the + or - prefix is
       used.  If the -s option is not specified,  the  filesystem
       will be resized to fill the given device.  The size param­
       eter may have one of the optional modifiers K, M, G, which
       means  the  size parameter is given in kilo-, mega-, giga­
       bytes respectively.

       The resize_reiserfs program does not manipulate  the  size
       of  the  device.  If you wish to enlarge a filesystem, you
       must make sure you expand  the  underlying  device  first.
       This can be done using cfdisk(8) for partitions, by delet­
       ing the partition and recreating it  with  a  larger  size
       (assuming there is free space after the partition in ques­
       tion).  Make sure you re-create it with the same  starting
       disk  cylinder as before!  Otherwise, the resize operation
       will certainly not work, and  you  may  lose  your  entire

       The  resize_reiserfs program allows to grow a reiserfs on-
       line if there is a free space on block device.

       If you wish to shrink an  reiserfs  partition,  first  use
       resize_reiserfs  to  shrink  the file system. You may then
       use cfdisk(8) to shrink the  device.  When  shrinking  the
       size  of  the device, make sure you do not make it smaller
       than the reduced size of the reiserfs filesystem.


       -s [+|-]size
              Set the new size in bytes.

       -j dev Set the journal device name.

       -f     Force, do not perform checks.

       -q     Do not print anything but error messages.

       -v     Turn on extra progress status messages (default).
