I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit. I need more disk space and my current configuration is as follows:
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/loop0 17G 17G 6.1M 100% / udev 1.9G 4.0K 1.9G 1% /dev tmpfs 773M 860K 772M 1% /run none 5.0M 0 5.0M 0% /run/lock none 1.9G 364K 1.9G 1% /run/shm /dev/sda3 284G 108G 176G 38% /host overflow 1.0M 40K 984K 4% /tmp
The size of the Windows partition
/dev/sda3 is way more than I need. I'd like to free up about 100-125 GB and move it to the Ubuntu partition
/dev/loop0. I expect to be working with databases around 25 GB in size and want to have room to grow.
Are the instructions here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ResizeandDuplicateWubiDisk the most appropriate ones to use?
Is there a compelling reason for me to consider using a different form of Ubuntu installation?
