I am currently running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, installed via Wubi on a Windows 7 machine. My HDD is 1 TB. When I installed via Wubi I used the maximum 30 GB installation size. Since then, I have decided I want to make Ubuntu my primary operating system. So my question is, how do I increase the size of
/home without losing my data?
While I'm not a total noob to Linux I am by no means an advanced user.
I downloaded ubuntu-12.04-desktop-amd64.iso from Ubuntu.com, made a bootable disk out of my USB drive, and started up the "trial version" of Ubuntu. I ran the installer until I got to this screen
I didn't want to install in Windows - that's what I already have through wubi and what I'm trying to fix. Nor do I want to replace Windows because there are still a few tasks here and there that I still need it to run. So I clicked the "Something else" option. I was greeted with this screen
I know virtually nothing about partitions because I've never had to mess with them before. So I clicked "Install now" and prayed that it would work. Instead, I got this error message
Like I said in my first edit, I'm by no means an advanced user, but you seem to know quite a bit about partitions, so can you help me?
