Just received yesterday my Asus 1015E with Ubuntu 12.04 preinstalled. Love the computer so far.
It is advertised as having a 320G drive. I don't need that much space in my device and could live with the current configuration, but the configuration is weird. Does anyone more knowledgeable have this computer and can make sense of this? Gparted gives me the following information:
What puzzles me is the last partition. Why would a computer be delivered with 107Gb partition with no apparent use for an average user? I am assuming that the /dev/sda2 is the recovery partition, at least the contents of it look like that. When I am mount /dev/sda4 there does not appear to be any files on it. Can I just format it over or move my swap and resize my root partition to take that space? I want to keep the recovery partition at least for now since you might never know if you have to send the computer for service. Any thoughts?
