    Re: Ubuntu and partitions.

    Code:
    Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0x39633962
    
       Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
    /dev/sda1               1         192     1536000   27  Unknown
    Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary.
    /dev/sda2   *         192        9681    76220703+   7  HPFS/NTFS
    /dev/sda3            9682       19457    78525720    5  Extended
    /dev/sda5            9682       10109     3437878+  83  Linux
    /dev/sda6           19054       19457     3245098+  82  Linux swap / Solaris
    /dev/sda7           10110       19003    71441023+  83  Linux
    /dev/sda8           19004       19053      401593+  82  Linux swap / Solaris
    Also if this helps at all here's a screenshot from GParted.

    Well, i'm not sure about the NTFS Partition, because of the Excliamtion Sign, but just select on the partition next to the unallocated space -> select Resize, and drap the slider to the edge. If the partition is blocked by another, you will be unabe to move it, unless the blocking partition is deleted (I guess you don't want that to happen)

    The NTFS partition is likely to be your Vista partition, and is probably best left alone (for now) if you want to keep Vista.

    Never assume that information you find using a search engine is up-to-date.

    I'm not sure I understand..
    As you can see from the image I uploaded, I already moved the unallowcated space.
    I just don't see how all of the space was used up by simply moving it.
    I should have 60+GB free instead of 2GB.
    Why is this?

    Also:

    NFTS is my Vista partition. >.<
    I have no idea what sda3 is.
    sda5 is the partition I would like to delete.
    It is my original Ubuntu install.
    sda7 is the partition of Ubuntu I am currently on/using.
    I would like to make it and Vista my ONLY two partitions.

    sda4-8 IS basically sda3, it i just an extened partition (logical). This means it that the computer will not boot to it, it is just primarily storage and other. It is capable of contain multiple partitions.

    If you want to delete sda5, than sda6 (your linux wasp for the first Ubuntu you installed) needs to eb switched off. Right click on sda6 and select "unlock."

    Then select sda5 & sda6 and delete.

    PS Not sure why sda7 has more that 60+GB used. Must be something in the partition using it. Look at the disk analyser on that Ubuntu drive.

    Thanks for all your help.
    I decided to back up all my files and just wipe my hard-drive completely.
    Now I'm using solely Ubuntu.
    Again, thanks for all the help!

    Or you can do what you have done, if all else fails
