Cannot expand size of drive on external storage (pidrive)



  • I followed a tutorial on youtube as to how to run an image from an external hard drive... I bought a pidrive, formatted it, and mounted the image onto it... I copied the filed needed for booting onto an sd card, and put that card in the pi... Booted great, and everything was working great... I was trying to add more roms to the image.. It let me add... but as I kept adding more and more, I got an error that I did not have enough space... I went into the retropie setup to where you can extend the size of the drive or whatever... It keeps telling me that sda2 is not an SD card, do not know how to expand... Now I'm lost... I'd really hate to start all over, but I will if I need to... Any help is very much appreciated.
