Is it possible to expand the file system only to a certain amount?
I guess everyone is familiar with the following problem: You start with for e.g. an 8 GB sd card. Expand the file system and when you backup your sd card to another 8 GB sd card there are just a few MB missing. So you have to use a bigger one and so on.
There are a few but fairly complicated guides explaining how to shrink the partition using gparted.
But is it possible to limit the expanding of the file system (with raspi-config) during the initial set up? I would like to limit it to for e.g. size_of_sd_card-10 MB and never have to worry again about those missing block due to manufacturing variance.
If not, could someone link to a good resource to shrink the partition?
