My Ubuntu 12.04 is set up on virtualbox, the host system is Windows 7.
When setting up my system, I created 8GB VDI hard drive. In a short time I run out of free space, so I increased the size of the VDI to ~50GB via Windows.
Now I'm trying to increase the size of my Ubuntu partition with the unallocated space gained by increasing the size of the virtual hdd.
Therefore, I've booted Ubuntu with the LiveCD and started up GParted. The problem is that I cannot increase the size of the desired partition, probably because swap is just between it and the unallocated space.
My question is - how can I move my allocated space to the neighborhood of Ubuntu partition and then enlarge it?
Here is how it looks like in GParted:
I'm also pasting the output of
