I'm backing up some disks using Clonezilla and get constant warning msgs saying:

Code:
Warning: Not all of the space available to /dev/sda appears to be used, you can fix the GPT to use all of the space (an extra 7 blocks) or continue with the current setting?
There doesn't seem to be an option to say I'm happy with this 'leave me alone'. The same warning keeps being displayed.

Does gpart() detect show available space not being used and can I use it to reclaim some.

I've had a similar msg when using gparted so it appears to be a Linuxism...

As I said it look like it's a Linuxism. Linux appears to want to change partition sizes to use up all available space. At least that's how I interpret it.

This is the out of gpart show -l da0
Code:
