I run a dual boot with W10/Ubuntu 18.04 Back when I set this up I was not expecting to spend this much time on Ubuntu and was thinking that W10 would remain my primary OS...But I'm not teaching you how things happen: now Ubuntu is by far my main OS. I didn't give me enough disc space at this time and would like to steal some Windows space to extend my /home partition in Ubuntu by 150Gb. I now have 3 windows partitions : C, D (from which i'd like to crop some space) and a small on which I'm not sure it's for. To the side of them, I have a logical partition containing 3 Ubuntu partitions : swap, /home and / .
Gparted lets me take away space from D, creating some unallocated space, but when I try to make this space EXT4 so it can become part of my Home, I can't because that would make it 5 partitions, which as you know is not allowed.
My question is : can I somehow force it to convert that unallocated space into EXT4 temporarily and then merge it and Home together or am I srewed ? I have a bunch of stuff installed on both OS and don't really want to make a re install... Thanks !
