Preferred Partition editor in Ubuntu?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I buggered my partitions up when I installed Ubuntu. I wasn't paying attention (as usual) during the install and resized my gaming drive from 200GB to 40GB (leaving me a 160gb Ubuntu partition)...and I have ZERO room left on it now.

I've tried GPARTED and QTPARTED - I was able to drop the Ubuntu partition to 20gb...but I can't seem size the gaming partition back up! It's rather irritating.

dunno about those wacky partition editors.....I'm old school.....
Check your partitions with fdisk and see if the ubuntu part actually got resized.

It is resized...but now I just want to take the 40GB gaming partition and stretch it to fill up the "unpartitioned" 160gb space and FDISK has no functionality to do that.

have you booted into windows yet? You need to if you don't want it to be F'ed up. Windows needs to do a chkdsk. Then you can resize. But the thing I'm thinking is the problem, is You have 40GB then your ubuntu partition, and no free space between the two. Then after the ubuntu partition, you have all that free space. What you need to do is boot live cd, then slide your ubuntu partitions to the end of the disk, and then you can resize your NTFS partition.

Have you tried using Partition Magic? One of the best programs out there for this issue.

Actually no it isn't. Gparted or Qparted is because it is completely free. Partition costs $$$$
