• /dev/sda2 - EXT4 - 136GB of free space
    • /dev/sda3 Extended
    • /dev/sda5 - ext4 - my ubuntu partition
    • /dev/sda6 linux swamp

I need to put those 136GB from /dev/sda2 into /dev/sda5, but apparently, because they are separate by the extended partition I cannot allocate the freespace.

Do you guys know how can I do it without formating?


Shrink sda2 and then expand the extended partition (sda3), and then expand sda5.
