This question already has an answer here:

I have both Ubuntu 12.04 and Windows 7 and dual booting. Ubuntu has 10GB of space and I'm running out of space. I want to increase this to 100GB, so I went to the Windows disk manager, it shows 100MB FAT16, 14GB recovery NTFS, 540GB OS NTFS. There are no partitions shown for Ubuntu/Linux in either the Windows disk manager or gparted. I used Windows disk manager to free up 100GB of space on my hard drive, is there a way to transfer my installed Ubuntu onto the new partition? Apparently, my existing install must be on Wubi, though I don't recall installing it there.

is there a way to transfer my installed Ubuntu onto the new partition?

Yes: (MigrateWubi) but I would not rely too much on it.

I'd recommend to first backup your documents, then partition your disk (this page can help), then try the above script. If the script fails, or if you want to install Ubuntu in a clean way, then use an Ubuntu install disk for a standard install.

This is exactly what I'm looking for, thanks a million! I see they also give a link on how to manually migrate, this is great, thanks again. –  Terry Leonhardt Jan 8 at 3:27
    
I used the MigrateWubi, it worked perfectly! Thanks all for the suggestions. :-) –  Terry Leonhardt Jan 10 at 9:11
