I have recently downloaded Ubuntu and started using it. I am very happy and impressed with the software so credit to the developers.
I do have a question however I have not been able to resolve. I installed Ubuntu as a copy of my windows OS was corrupt and did not allow me to start the system up. I would like to keep this copy of Ubuntu but I would also like to have a copy of Windows 10 also.
I have a 500GB hard drive which I installed Ubuntu on it and I never partitioned it so Ubuntu occupies aprox 460 GB. I plugged in my pen drive and ran Ubuntu from it and tried to partition the drive using GParted. I set the linux-swap to swap off and go about making the necessary adjustments. I get the following errors and it does not allow me to partition the drive.
Shrink /dev/sda2 from 458.30 GiB to 166.82 Gib 00:02:23 (with a stop sign next to it)
Move /dev/sda3 to the right
Why is GParted giving me these errors?
Do you suggest I fresh install Ubuntu (I do not have anything of value on the computer) and then allocate a partition from the fresh install?
I would like to try installing Windows 10 and see if it has the same option as Ubuntu (to run alongside another operating system). I could always clean install Windows 10, removing Ubuntu and then install Ubuntu again if Win 10 does not have this option.
Thanks in advance and great OS.
