File system growth

I enlarged the virtual hard disk with which I’d like to test NomadBSD.

Is it possible to grow a file system, to utilise the free space?

growfs(8)

Hi @grahamperrin,

  1. Boot into single-user mode.
  2. Run gpart resize -i 3 ada0
  3. Run growfs /dev/ada0s3a
  4. Exit from the single-user shell via exit or Ctrl-D

Hi, my friend Mk1, how are you?

In my case, expanded the ZFS file system that way >
