This question already has an answer here:

I installed Ubuntu 12.04 and I let it run from 10 GB. Now I have run out of space by using 10 GB of data, but I have another 305 on my default hard drive. How do I make all that data go onto that disk so I can have more space?

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

If the 305 GB free space is right after the 10 GB partition, you can extend the latter to cover the former. If it isn't, one easy way would be to just move the /home directory to a new partition inside the free space, leaving the system in the 10 GB partition (which is not quite a lot, but could suffice). Of course, you can bring out /tmp too.

You can use fdisk, gnome-disks or gparted (easiest) to modify the partitions and reconfigure /etc/fstab without manually editing it.
