    mint partition increase

    Hello

    I would like some help in increasing my main linux mint partition.
    Ive got a 160 gb hdd but only made the main partition 18gb so now Im in a bit of a pickle since I now have the measly number of 0bytes left.
    So is there a way to use the 140 gb of free space or do I have to reinstall.

    Thanks in advance

    Boot from a live cd and use gparted to resize the partitions. They cannot be modified while mounted, so you cannot resize from the installed system, it must be done from the live cd.
