I have a laptop with 128gb SSD on which I have windows 10 installed and a 1tb on drive which I have Xubuntu. Now I want to shrink the size of the Xubuntu partition and want to use the unallocated space as a media partition for both windows and Xubuntu. And I want that partition to show up as D drive in Windows. Can anyone help me with this.

  1. Make a Live USB with Ubuntu (tutorial here) or create a Live CD with Ubuntu ISO
  2. Run Live Ubuntu and install GParted or open it if is installed.
  3. In the left side, on top, select the hard disk (1TB HDD) -> [ /dev/sdx (1024GB) ]
  4. Right-click on the partition you want to resize, then click Resize/Move
  5. Change the New size (MiB) value with the size you want on Xubuntu partition
  6. Click on Resize/Move button
  7. Edit -> Apply All Operations
  8. Create your new partition.

NOTE: When resize, is the possibility of data loss. Please create a backup with your data!
