I don't believe I am permissioned to post images; further I don't know how to capture the gparted screenshot. I can, however, provide the sudo fdisk -l as posted subsequent to the original question.

comment Can I change file systems inside of partitions within GParted?
@Bucic What is the best backup program to use for this function inside of Ubuntu? The size of sda6 (/home) is 99.96GiB, used is 1.90GiB. Once this small amount is backed up, how much space should I then allocate from sda6 to sda7 (NTFS)? I had originally intended to have all 100GiB for data storage, but am now uncertain as to how many GiBs I need to leave in the ext4 "/home" sda6....Thanks again for your help and any further thoughts.

Seeing as how I can only have 4 primary partitions, is this even possible seeing as my /home partition (sda6) is a sub-partition from the extended partition (sda4)? If it is possible, could I (using GParted), unmount the current /home sub-partition, shrink this and then create a new, effectively a sub-sub partition, in the NTFS format? Thanks in advance.

comment Which file system do I select for sharing files between Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04.1?
Oops! Hang on a second - this is the error message i received after choosing FAT32 and then hitting [INSTALL NOW]: The file system type fat32 cannot be mounted on /home, because it is not a fully-functional Unix file system. Please choose a different file system, such as ext2. Me again: Any suggestions?

Thanks, Luis. I sounds like I should probably reformat to NTFS thru Windows, after the fact. Thanks again for your assistance. This is now resolved.

Thank you. As NTFS is not "explicitly" an option, does that mean I choose FAT 32? My options are as follows (as part of the Ubuntu installer):ext2, ext3, ext4, reiser fs, btrfs, jfs, xfs, fat 16, fat 32, swap. and do not use. Thanks again.
