I installed Ubuntu 11.10 - 32bit (with 40GB disk space) alongside windows7. Then, I installed a Ubuntu 11.10 - 64bit alongside windows, as the 32bit was installed by my mistake. I chose the recommended option of saving the files by upgrading Ubuntu but this procedure failed. When I tried to reboot, the system refused to reboot. Doing a clean install of 64bit ubuntu solved the problem.
Now, everything is good and Ubuntu 64bit is installed alongside windows except that I seem to have lost some disk space. Looking at the disk utility, I see that there are 2 swap partitions:
Going by the number, do you think, I can choose delete partition from the
disk utility on sda5 ? Will I be able to recover the 4.2GB space and get it to be counted into the 32GB space (sda6) where this Ubuntu is running ?
Kindly help on how to go about this, I am a newbie and I am a bit worried if i will mess up something.
