从活动的Lubuntu USB中删除了msftdata分区。安全吗?

I have an 8gb USB stick with Lubuntu 18.04 installed on it. It was created with mkusb and has persistent storage filling up maximum possible area. At some point I needed more persistent storage capacity, so I'm trying to clone the entire installation to a larger stick, using this instruction.

尽管该答案的“ dus”部分很好地完成了,导致在新棒上可以启动的一对一复制,但是稍后的“ gparted”部分给我带来了麻烦。

The partition layout of my original stick contains a small partition /dev/sdb1 situated at the end, flagged "msftdata". In order to resize the casper-rw one, I guess I need to move this one to the end of the new stick also, so that casper has the room to grow. The problem is, gparted seems to have some issues with this little partition and refuses to move it on the new stick. Deleting it seems to be the only way gparted is able to touch it.

我的问题是,这个小分区是做什么的,它做什么,为什么在那儿,删除它能破坏什么?

实际上,我做了一些实验,将其删除在新的棍子上,然后将卡斯珀(casper)种植到合适的大小。克隆仍然可以启动,一切似乎都很正常,但是我想知道在删除这个小家伙以后是否面临任何风险。

Here's some details from gparted concerning the partition in question.
