I have a Wubi based installation of Ubuntu 14.04. Now that I'm comfortable with using Ubuntu, I want to move it out of the Windows file system. Here's a picture of GParted running within my Wubi installation.

As you can see below, currently Ubuntu is installed in "Chintoo's Disk". I have 60.06 Gb of unallocated space, into which I want to transfer the current Wubi based Ubuntu installation.

So, my question is:
How do I move a Wubi installation into Unallocated disk space while keeping dual-boot and all the data from my Wubi installation intact.

Note: This is most likely already answered somewhere on this site, but I can't find the relevant post.

@Kendor Unlike that Question, I want to keep Windows (and not replace it) and he wants to move to an existing partition, I want to move into the unallocated space. As I can't locate instructions for that, I asked this question. –  Schoolboy May 25 '14 at 15:25
