Resize OpenELEC RPi /storage to more than 2GB? - skyd - 04-09-2015

Hi,

Doing touch /storage/.please_resize_me seems to delete all content from the /storage folder, but it doesn't see to enlarge the partition.
Is it possible to enlarge the /storage partition to more than the original 2GB when installing it?
(*) I'm running OpenELEC 4.2.1 that was installed onto an RPi 8GB SD card via NOOBS.

Thanks.

Don't do that.

Most likely it is because noobs uses a predefined partition layout. If you want to fill the SD card just use the normal installation method.
