Have seen a few questions regarding this but didn't help my case.
I have installed Ubuntu 17.04 alongside Windows 8 using a dual boot setup(Have to boot into ubuntu using f9 key and selecting device to boot.Have an HP laptop so grub does not show up by default.)
So i have some unallocated space and i would like to increase the size of my root partition by using the unallocated space plus it's current size.
Here is a picture of my results from Gparted using Ubuntu Live Disk Gparted Screen shot of System
The unallocated space shown in the picture needs to be added to the partition name /dev/sda9
I believe i cannot use the normal "move to left and resize approach" as shown here. Reference Question Link
Do tell me if it might be possible to resize my system in the first place.I didn't realize this that i would be facing such space shortage as i have just finished setting up the system.
