- How do I resize root partition? 6 answers
I was a newbie while installing linux mint 17.2 in my laptop. So I allocated more than 20GB for my swap memory and 30Gb for ext4 partition. Now only I realized that swap memory is using instead of RAM while running memory overwhelming applications.I have 4GB of DDR3 RAM so no need of this much of swap memory.So I want to add some memory space from swap to Ext4. Is there any idea for deleting or decreasing the swap memory and add that memory to EXT4 partition? The details of my hard disk given bellow .I'm using Linux mint 17.2 64 bit and windows 8 pro with media center 64 bit in dual boot.
