non-HDL partitions –
my question might not be specific to ULE, but here it is.
I was just using the HDDManager in MISC/ for the first time, and I was looking at my non-HDL partitions (__net, __system, __sys-conf, __common, __boot) and here is what it says:
Would it be safe (or possible) to shrink these partitions to a more conservative size? I'm guessing 128mb might be the smallest possible allowable partition size. But with the size of __common, we're looking at possibly freeing up a couple gigs here. Now I use my __boot partition to store my ELF's on, I'm assuming we can store any kind of files on those partitions too. Do you guys think shrinking these partitions would make the HDD unreadable?
part. size: 128mb
part. size: 256mb
part. size: 512mb
part. size: 1024mb
If I have got it right, they may even be erased (or not created when winhip formats the drive) if you don't care about $ony tools compatibility.

As far as I know it isn't possible to decrease the size of any partition. I have asked this question before and was told NO but if it is posiible and uLaunch has the ability now with the HDD Manager then uLaunch is even more ****in' awesome than I'm already thinking.
you can change partition sizes with HDD Format Tool at least.
Would be great if HDDManager could do everything the format tool could do, it would definitely be more reliable.
Can I store ELFs and media files in those unused partitions created by HDL?
uLaunchELF will allow you to store any files and folders you like in the system partitions "__common" and "__boot", just as you can do in normal partitions that you create yourself with HddManager (the ones starting with "+").
