I have dual booted windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and have decided that I need more space on my Ubuntu partition. I used
gparted on a Live CD to shrink my Windows 7 partition (
/dev/sda3) but when i try to resize the extended partition (
/dev/sda4), which houses my linux partition (
/dev/sda6), the right click options are greyed out and there is a key next to the extended partition.
I have resized the partitions within the extended partition before to provide room, but now I can go no further with that, and need to grow the extended partition. The free space lies to the left of the extended partition and there is a small amount of free space directly to the right as well.
Also, within the extended partition is
ntfs) , which I have no idea what is on it, but most of the space (3.42GB) is used,
ext4, mount point:
/), my partition containing Linux, and
linux-swap). I hope you guys can help me with this because I really don't want to screw something up while trying to resize the extended partition.
