    Enlarging ubuntu partiton in future

    I just installed ubuntu and a dual-boot configuration to Win Vista. So far so good. I already notice an increase in overall performance and my hard drive isn't always going and doing something.

    I partitioned my hard drive 75% Win Vista and 25% Ubuntu.
    If I like Ubuntu after trying it out for a few weeks or months, I'm thinking of reversing the percentages of the partition. What would be the most straightforward way of doing this? Can I just load the same install disk and go through partition utility or will this wipe out my current Ubuntu install and start over from scratch?

    Thanks

    Boot the CD and run the Live CD option, from here run gparted application and resize as you wish.

    You have to do this from the Live CD as it must be done without the system being mounted.

    Thank you. I'll give that a try when the time comes around to doing it.

    Although, be aware that any valuable data should be back up and recovery disks should be made. Resizing partions is not exactly flawless, I have done a lot of stuff with partitions and a few times it has messed up. Good Luck.
