Hi all
I started resizing my linux partition using qtparted supplied with sysemrescuecd I have deleted ext3 root partitiohn then created it size became 9GB after it was 4GB and was 100% full
although qtparted shows the created partition with the new size (9gb) and it also shows the same when turning to partition magic in widows
but when I logon in text mode typing df -h i see the partition with its old size telling me that it is 100% full
of course it was full this is why I have resized it
the data of course was backed up and restored using partimage
any suggestions

    what does fsck is telling you? Try Force fsck on reboot.

    # shutdown -rF now
