Hello to all,
I have problem with shrinking Linux partition.
My hdd is 400Gb and it is only 51% full, so I want to shrink it under 300GB. I have tried to use Gprted but there is not option to shrink it, because it see it as full. I have tried to use resize2fs, but I was unable to unmount partition.

This is what I got with df:

Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
442747752 213475988 206804396 51% /
tmpfs 16438680 0 16438680 0% /dev/shm
/dev/sda1 487652 106862 355190 24% /boot
