I have a 500gb ssd and I have 1 container which its size is only 70gb. I can’t add the remaining 430gb of storage to this container using disk utility for some reason
I tried adding the remaining space using terminal but it doesn’t work:
diskutil list /dev/disk0 (internal, physical): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *500.1 GB disk0 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1 2: Apple_APFS Container disk1 70.0 GB disk0s2 /dev/disk1 (synthesized): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: APFS Container Scheme - +70.0 GB disk1 Physical Store disk0s2 1: APFS Volume MacOS - Data 29.9 GB disk1s1 2: APFS Volume Preboot 25.8 MB disk1s2 3: APFS Volume Recovery 525.7 MB disk1s3 4: APFS Volume VM 1.1 GB disk1s4 5: APFS Volume MacOS 11.2 GB disk1s5
I tried using
diskutil apfs resizeContainer disk0s2 0
but this is what I got:
Started APFS operation Error: -69743: The new size must be different than the existing size
also when I used
diskutil info disk0s2 | grep -e Offset -e Size
it showed I have 512 bytes of device block size but I’m not sure if that’s the problem and if so, how to fix it…
Partition Offset: 430107840512 Bytes (840054376 512-Byte-Device-Blocks) Disk Size: 70.0 GB (70000001024 Bytes) (exactly 136718752 512-Byte-Units) Device Block Size: 512 Bytes
any help is much appreciated!
