My problem is that when trying to resize, copy or move my ext3 partition in parted, I get the following error:

Depending on which version of parted you have, you may need to upgrade.
You can also try ext2resize (an old version of which is what the code in
parted is based on), or resize2fs (included in your e2fsprogs).

If you are doing anything other than just resizing (i.e. moving) your
partition, then you need parted, and probably need to ask on the parted
user mailing list bug-parted gnu org I believe.
