This question already has an answer here:
While installing Ubuntu I went with default partitioning without knowing what it actually was. I have a 500GB hard drive, and after installation, all of it is converged to a single partition, on which the OS got installed. Now I want to make partitions and have already searched for the solution, but couldn't come up with the one. Please guide, how can I make multiple partitions from this single partition?
Partition: /dev/sda2 Name: *Nothing appears here* File System: ext4 Mount Point: / Size: 457.40 GiB Used: 14.04 GiB Unused: 443.36 GiB Flags: *Nothing appears here*
THIS IS THE DRIVE THAT I WANT TO SHRINK FURTHER INTO NEW VOLUMES.
Apart from this drive, there are following partitions visible (as in gparted):
Partition: /dev/sda1 Name: EFI System Partition File System: fat32 Mount Point: /boot/efi Size: 512.00 MiB Used: 4.60 MiB Unused: 507.40 MiB Flags: boot, esp
Partition: /dev/sda3 Name: *Nothing appears here* File System: linux-swap Mount Point: *Nothing appears here* Size: 7.86 GiB Used: 0.00 B Unused: 7.86 GiB Flags: *Nothing appears here*
I also have 1.02 MiB unallocated space appearing as a fourth partition
