Shrinking win7 drive and assigning the unallocated space to already installed Ubuntu 11.04
Asked by: Rahul Jain
I have a dual boot system with Ubuntu 11.04 and window 7. I have a ideapad z560 with 500GB HDD and 3GB RAM preinstalled with windows 7 home premium.
When i first installed ubuntu on it, i gave ubuntu only 100 GB space (remaining around 395 for windows). Now (as with every Linux user) i use ubuntu a lot more than windows. and i would like to increase its size.
I know i can shrink windows’ drive and create some unallocated space. but after that, how can I assign that free space to ubuntu ???
