I currently have one hard drive with 3 partitions and 2 partitions of unallocated space. I am dual booting Windows 7 (1 partition) and another partition for Ubuntu 12.04.
I'm using Gparted and Ubuntu 12.04 Live CD with all drives unmounted, this is what i'm seeing:
- /dev/sda1. NTFS. 325gb, 292gb used. Boot flag. = WINDOWS 7
(extended) /dev/sda2. EXTENDED. 92.95gb. lba flag.
2A. (extended) /dev/sda5. EXT4. 89gb. = UBUNTU 2B. (under extended) unallocated. 3.82gb
- unallocated. 39.75gb = ???
- /dev/sda4. NTFS. Respawn Recovery. 7.79gb. 4.27gb used.
- unallocated. 3.02mb.
I CAN resize sda4 to include the 40gb of unallocated space but obviously I dont see the point in doing that to a recovery partition. I CAN resize sda5 to include the unallocated space of 3.82gb but would this help?
