So I used to have windows 7 on a dual boot with Ubuntu... Windows stopped working, so I deleted it, and now theres just this big thing of free space, i was just wondering, could i just add this to my existing drive for ubuntu intstead of having to mount is whenever i need to use it?

Basicaly it just says 201 gb volume on the list of drives, but I just want to put the space on that onto my existing Linux drive.

To do this you will need to boot from an ubuntu live cd, as you cannot edit partitions while the disk is in use. You can then start the gparted program, and this will allow you to re-size the ubuntu partition to use the extra space.
