View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Need help to resize partition

June 20th, 2008, 10:59 PM
I choose to Install Ubuntu on all hard disk (Second Partition Option) during format. Now, my SWAP partition is too big (about 2.8GB) and it is of Extended type. I would like to reduce this size about 1.5GB and would like the adjacent partition to take up the balance space. Shrinking SWAP partition is no problem but to expand /dev/sda4 is not possible because it is Logical partition. I believe there must be ways to overcome it but I just dont know how. Please give some advice

Shrink your swap partition, then shrink your extended partition, then add the space to the primary partition.
