I have a PC with Ubuntu 12.04 and Windows 7 in dual boot. The Ubuntu partition has 25GB of disk space and I'm running out of space so I want to make this partition bigger. The situation is the following:
Dispositivo Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 2048 3071999 1534976 82 Linux swap / Solaris /dev/sda2 * 3072000 254730239 125829120 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT /dev/sda3 254730240 438394879 91832320 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT /dev/sda4 438396926 488396799 24999937 5 Esteso /dev/sda5 438396928 488396799 24999936 83 Linux
sda2 partition is the Windows 7 one, in
sda3 I have only some data (this is the partition that I want to resize to gain space for the Ubuntu one) and then in
sda4-5 there is Ubuntu.
My questions are:
- I don't understand what is the
sda4partition that seems to contain the Ubuntu one (
- Is safe to resize partitions
gpartedfrom a LiveCD? I mean safe both for Windows (data in
sda3and system in
sda2) and for Ubuntu (
sda5). It is better if I move my data from partition
sda3to an external memory before doing the resize?
