I have a Sony Vaio laptop with 320GB HDD and 3GB RAM. It came with Windows 7. I chose to install Ubuntu 12.04. At the time of installation of ubuntu I did partition as follows.
NTFS - 14 GB (Windows 7 Recovery) NTFS - 140 MB (Windows 7 Loader) Swap area - 1.5 GB EXT4 - 162 GB (/) Free Space - 142 GB
Now after installation it only shows 149 GB of free space inside
/home. How do I recover the free space of 142 GB? And how do I allocate it? Do I have to reinstall the OS if I need to recover it?
