Re: Hard disk space help
Couple of words of caution (from experience
1) Do NOT use GParted to shrink down your Win7 OS partition if that is where you end up having to get more space for Ubuntu. Doing that risks corrupting the Win7 OS filesystem and rendering it unbootable -- making it really hard to fix.
2) Do not write to your Win7 OS partition from inside Ubuntu. Writing to a data partition is OK, but writing to an OS partition again risks file corruption.
Ubuntu 16.04 Mate, Mint 18 Mate; MS Win 8.1, MS Win10 Pro.
