How to make Ubuntu use the entire partition?

I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my 64 bit machine using Wubi.Both windows and Ubuntu are installed on the C drive. I have the D drive which as over 40GB free. Now I want to give that free space to my Ubuntu.

I read that I can do it with Gparted but I am not sure how to.

So can someone please explain this process step by step?

Looking forward to your positive response.

Cheers. Jayneil. (

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

Have you tried to expand the linux partition ? Can you install and use the palimpsest utility ? Also you can do this with gparted just expand your partition. (not the small swap partition!)
