  • You need to boot a live session and use goarted to 1. Move one partition to the right, then 2. Grow the other partition – GabrielaGarcia Jun 20 at 17:55

  • If you don't understand partitions perhaps beter to leave them alone?Nothing about managing partitions is without risk! – GabrielaGarcia Jun 20 at 18:03
  • First make sure you have backups. Then start by understanding that you can only expand a partition if there's unallocate space contiguous to its end, reason why you need to move one partition fir that matter. – GabrielaGarcia Jun 20 at 18:09
  • Make a backup before doing anything. And do a little search about dealing with partitions (i've just googled a little but you can google more): - howtoforge.com/partitioning_with_gparted - gparted.org/… – Iogui Jun 20 at 18:13
  1. Move sda6 to the right.

  2. Select sda9 and extend it to the right.


Make sure that you have a good backup of your important Ubuntu files, as this procedure can corrupt or loose data.

Keep these things in mind:

  • always start the entire procedure with issuing a swapoff on any mounted swap partitions, and end the entire procedure with issuing a swapon on that same swap partition

  • a move is done by pointing the mouse pointer at the center of a partition and dragging it left/right with the hand cursor

  • a resize is done by dragging the left/right side of a partition to the left/right with the directional arrow cursor

  • if any partition can't be moved/resized graphically, you may have to manually enter the specific required numeric data (don't do this unless I instruct you to)

  • you begin any move/resize by right-clicking on the partition in the lower pane of the main window, and selecting the desired action from the popup menu, then finishing that action in the new move/resize window

Do the following...

Note: if the procedure doesn't work exactly as I outline, STOP immediately and DO NOT continue.

  • boot to a Ubuntu Live DVD/USB
  • start gparted
  • move sda6 partition all the way to the right
  • resize the right side of sda9 all the way to the right
  • click the Apply icon
  • reboot
