Here is a post with info about your windows partition: Using a Windows partition

If you are just playing around and either don't have lots of video/sound files, you'll be fine with 10GB IMHO.

As to how to increase the space you have allocated- that depends on how you installed it, WUBI, VirtualBox or dual boot.

thanks for the link, it's really informative. I've installed ubuntu using the wubi.exe within win7, it was really smooth and direct installation and it was done in about 10-15 minutes. but i'm now considering changing to ubuntu and i'd like to use more space for it. Thanks again. – user145774 Apr 3 '13 at 16:36
