View Full Version : [ubuntu] How to make the partition larger

I'm a new ubuntu user, and I love it!

When I installed ubuntu, I choosed 15 Gb for the partition C: (I also have windows on my computer). How can I make this partition biger? I don't have enough space to import all my music and pictures.

You need to boot from the LiveCD and do the changes from there :)
Try to avoid moving partitions. Resize them, create new ones, but dont move them. You can loose data and it tooks too much time.

First, back up any information. It will be written over when you reformat the enlarged partition.

To reformat the partition, download GParted (http://gparted.sourceforge.net/).

Gparted should be in the repos - use synaptic.
