I want to install Ubuntu onto a machine with windows but the amount of backup data is too large for me to transfer without bringing in another computer.

Can I install Ubuntu as a dual-boot with a resizable partition, transfer my data to the Ubuntu partition, and then remove the Windows partition sizing the Ubuntu partition over it?


Yes, to do that you will use the GParted app, hope it solved your doubt :)
