Re: Shared Files Partition Problem
if you still have nothing stored on your partition, you can reformat it to NTFS (to store files larger than 4 GB) i use a 1 TB shared partition without any issues...
To partition it in windows click start, then right click on "computer" and choose "manage". Wait until a windows pops up and choose "Disk management" which is at the bottom on the left. Now you should be able to see all your partitions (note that all your ubuntu partitions will have no names, just don't touch them. I will attach a screenshot to show you what they look like). Now click on your 140 GB partition and delete it. Make a new volume with the NTFS filesystem. Once you are done, exit the window. Now click start again, then computer. Now you should see your C: drive and your 140 GB partition. Rightclick on your 140 GB partition and rename it to whatever you want. Now it will also show the name in ubuntu.
you are done
edit: note that i have no SWAP partition, i have 8 GB of ram so i did not need one..the red encircled partition with no name is my ext4 partition
