View Full Version : [ubuntu] Partition

a noob question

i have install ubuntu, it's working great but i need more space on the root partition.

if i resize (adding free spaces) the partition, will the ubuntu be affected?

because i've done it once (about 6 months ago), but i've done it in opposite, i mean moving free spaces from root and other partitions (free space) to other partition by keeping the swap partition constant, then the ubuntu fails.

You should be able to use gparted to resize the / without any problems, but it is a good idea to backup your important stuff before working on partitions.
