I have install Ubuntu. And my HD size is 360 GB. I have used 250 GB HD for windows and 110 GB for Ubuntu. My space for ubuntu is full. But I have 100 GB free space in Windows. I want to use that space for Ubuntu. Is it possible or not ?

or Should I have to reinstall ubuntu new with HD partition. But I don't think this is good idea ? I don't want loss my data of ubuntu.

What about mounting NTFS Windows partition and using it from Ubuntu? – Andrejs Cainikovs May 8 '14 at 12:01

If you wish to permanently add more space to ubuntu partition you must only resize them.

You have nice tutorial here.

But you can only mount windows partiton, and use them from ubuntu. Way to mount ntfs partition in ubuntu you have described here.

If you wish some third solution you must be more precise with your request,

Remember to defrag the NTFS partition before resizing - this would make the resizing process faster and more reliable. – ludicerZA May 8 '14 at 13:56
