I installed Ubuntu just yesterday, but I had to install it to just 6GB the OS taking up around 3GB I think, but I have about 260GB free on my one and only hard drive. How can I utilize that space for Ubuntu?
I have it set to dual boot, my other OS being Windows. I've managed to split 50GB off of that, and it comes up as "unallocated space", but when I try to either create "a new simple volume" from that it tells me that the drive already has the maximum number of partitions on it.
When I try to Extend the 6GB partition Ubuntu is on now, the option is grayed out (I'm doing this via Control Panel on Windows under Disk Management or create and format drive partitions or something like that).
On Ubuntu, the 50GBs comes up as "unusable space". I also can't delete any partitions, other than extend the 50GB one back to the original Windows OS partition, another is a recovery partition, and there's 2 more of about 100MB each.
I want Ubuntu really bad, and if I can't fix this I'm going to have to buy an external hard drive. I'm running Ubuntu 13.10, 64-bit, Core i3, etc.
