I have my computer with both W7 and Ubuntu for quite a while now. I had made the Partitions with Easeus Partition Manager and no problem there.
I've grown fond of Ubuntu and wanted to allocate it more space. So with Easus partition manager I resized my W7 partitions and turned them to unallocated space.
When I re-started I got the Grub error "Unkown Filesystem", but I was able to repair it with Boot-Repair. I am now able to boot again into both OSs, but my swap partition is "not available" in System Monitor and Gparted and KPM can't find my filesystems.
fdisk -l is this:

@JOHN S GRUBER: I did not move SWAP partition. i only resized two primary partitions; one has the W7 OS, the other my W7 user info (My Documents, etc). MY fourth primary partition (which EASEUSPM could see but not modify) has two logical partitions: one is for all ubuntu, the other SWAP.
NOTE: "Swap" (as any other partition) do not show up in Gparted (or KPM) at all. So no right click option is possible.
sudo parted -l:

@John S Gruber: I don't really know if I want it encrypted or not. I guess since it has non important data it could be non encrypted. If there is a notable advantage then maybe encryption would be better. Which do you recommend? (The focus of this machine is speed and performance though, so think about that for your advice.) Thank you.
Thanks for all the responses guys.
