I want to add the unallocated memory to my Ubuntu partition on /dev/sda7 Without the need of re-installing or completely formatting anything, please. my problem is quite similar to this one but I couldn't solve it this way. Help is appreciated, thank you.

    It is difficult to resize a running root partition, although it can in some cases be done. Easier, burn a liveUSB, boot from that device and use gparted from the liveUSB to resize your 'dev/sda7' into the unallocated space. – Charles Green Nov 27 '17 at 22:44
  • That is not memory, it is disc space. The free space must be adjacent to the partition you wist to enlarge, so you have to move the partitions one a a time. – Panther Nov 27 '17 at 22:59
  • It worked with the live CD. It was more simpler as expected. Thank you very much – Rudi Poepsel Lemaitre Nov 29 '17 at 8:34
