That GParted full Tutorial is the clearest thing I have read so far on Partitioning. Thanks
I just opened Gparted to see what my set up currently looks like. Screenshots are attached.
if memory serves though that I think I might have two physical drives, one only 20Gb and the other something like 250Gb.
(this was a cobbled together system and so I might well have just used a spare 20Gb HDD to install Ubuntu on.)
Would this seem correct based on the screenshots?
if that is the case, I presume I cannot resize the "sda"?
To get more space for Ubuntu I would have to reinstall on the other HDD or another one?
Again, many thanks. This has been a very helpful exercise. I don't feel as useless and helpless as I did 2 days ago.
