The disk is only a 72Gb disk - you're trying to put 130Gb of space on it - wish I could do that it would be great!

Code:
Part Tag Flag First Sector Size Last Sector
0 usr wm 34 67.00GB 140509217
1 usr wm 140509218 60.00GB 266338337
2 unassigned wm 0 0 0
3 unassigned wm 0 0 0
4 unassigned wm 0 0 0
5 unassigned wm 0 0 0
6 unassigned wm 0 0 0
8 reserved wm 143358321 8.00MB 143374704

NAME
prtvtoc - report information about a disk geometry and partitioning SYNOPSIS
prtvtoc [-fhs] [-t vfstab] [-m mnttab] device DESCRIPTION
The prtvtoc command allows the contents of the label to be viewed. The command can be used only by the super-user. The device name can be the file name of a raw device in the form of /dev/rdsk/c?t?d?s2 or can be the file name of a block device in the form of /dev/dsk/c?t?d?s2. OPTIONS
The following options are supported: -f Report on the disk free space, including the starting block address of the free space, number of blocks, and unused parti- tions. -h Omit the headers from the normal output. -m mnttab Use mnttab as the list of mounted filesystems, in place of /etc/mnttab. -s Omit all headers but the column header from the normal output. -t vfstab Use vfstab as the list of filesystem defaults, in place of /etc/vfstab.
