I am currently dual booting Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.10. I have 500GB with 300GB free space on my Windows, and have a 100GB on my Ubuntu. I want to move 200GB from my Windows partition to my Ubuntu Partition. Please help.

Post the layout of your hard disk. Go to Disks application, select your hard disk, take a screenshot and post it here – blvdeer Jan 13 '13 at 7:48

For windows follow these instructions.

For Ubuntu:

Open a terminal window and type df -h to get the size of the root volume, then type sudo resize2fs /dev/<disk – mine was sda1>, then after a few minutes and the operation is completed type df-h again to verify your root volume has increased.

Do windows first.
