This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Paste the result of lsblk -f ... – George Udosen Jan 20 '17 at 15:58
  • I already add the result of lsblk -f – Omar Faruk Sazib Jan 20 '17 at 16:15
  • If you can edit your question to include a current-window-only screenshot of gparted, I can make a better recommendation. Show us the output of df -h. To get my attention, start new comments with @heynnema or I may miss them. – heynnema Jan 20 '17 at 17:57
  • @heynnema I have already updated – Omar Faruk Sazib Jan 21 '17 at 16:08
  • Without seeing the gparted image that I requested, I have no idea where you might have free space to allocate to Ubuntu. The df -h command confirms that your disk is close to full right now, so I understand why you need to add space, but you may not have it. – heynnema Jan 21 '17 at 16:51

After having deleted stuff from sda7, there's now room to increase the Ubuntu partition sda9.

Backup any important data from Ubuntu first!

  1. You'll need a Ubuntu Live DVD
  2. Review the instructions for Boot Repair and print out the instructions for how to install it in the Ubuntu Live environment, and how to use it, just in case Ubuntu won't boot when you're done. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair for detailed info
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair && boot-repair
  1. To start the process...

    • update: boot into Windows
    • update: shrink the sda7 partition, leaving some free space in the partition, using the Disk Management application
    • boot to the Ubuntu Live DVD and start gparted
    • right-click on sda7, in the bottom window pane, choose move/resize, and in the graphic representation, hover the mouse pointer over the right side of sda7 and you'll see an arrow, then drag the right side of sda7 to the left (watching the numeric values shown below), leaving some spare space in the partition, then click OK
    • right-click on sda8, in the bottom window pane, and issue a swapoff command
    • right-click on sda8, in the bottom window pane, choose move/resize, and if you hover the mouse pointer over sda8 in the graphic representation, it'll turn into a hand cursor, then move the entire sda8 partition all the way to the left (the size of sda8 should not change), then click OK (if you can't do this step, then STOP here, and let me know)
    • right-click on sda9, in the bottom window pane, choose move/resize, and in the graphic representation, using the hand cursor, move the entire sda9 partition all the way to the left, then resize the right side of sda9 all the way to the right, then click OK
    • click the Apply icon to begin the work
    • right-click on sda8, in the bottom window pane, and issue a swapon command
    • reboot to Ubuntu
