I did that and had a problem, as it said was performing 1 of the 2 tasks
1/ reducing the 29gb sdbe to 20gb and after 3 hours came back with error
2/ enlarging the 8bg sdbe to 19gg, but did not even start cause of above error.
am I supposed to in thew terminal type sudo swapoff -a or thru drop down menu of the
40gb disc, click swapoff, and when finished do I turn the swapon???????
PS I got  some printouts form print,and does not say anythink about swapoff??????
