I'm running Linux through VirtualBox on Windows 7. When I created the virtual hard drive I only used the default size which is 8 GB. I was able to resize the virtual hard drive to 40 GB but in Linux there's still very little space.
So I got a gparted live CD and booted the virtual machine into gparted to see if I could somehow add or resize the main partition. The extended/swap partition is in the way of the un-allocated space and the main boot partition, which is what I am wanting to add on to. So I can update or download more programs without running out of space.
Right now I am just confused on how to do this.
