    This process failed to work for me. My volume was somehow getting overwritten and corrupted by the fdisk program. As a result, e2fsck was yielding a “bad magic number” error on the new partition, and the volume had to be junked.

    However, using the “sfdisk” program instead of “fdisk” seems to have solved the problem.

    I haven’t tried sfdisk but glad sfdisk work for you.
