I partitioned my HDD for Linux, OK? Well, I partitioned it wrong, and now my Windows partition only has 82 MB left. It's a 30 GB partition.<br />
<br />
Is there a way I can re-partition without losing data? I was kinda thinking about doing a re-install of Windows when my CPU and Video Card come anyway, but I like my PC right now...<br />
<br />
So, help, please? <img src="/images/smilies/redface.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Embarrassment" class="inlineimg" />

resize the partition. Whatever you used to partition it should work...unless it was the windows install disc lol.<br />
<br />
Find a bootable cd, like QTParted (Free), or partition magic 8 (not free)<br />
<br />
It's all good, man.

If not you could try and use partition magic 7. Does the same thing...<br />

Would the Ubuntu disk I used to partition it fix it without deleting my Linux stuff?

Ummm, not meaning to bump constantly, but it's kinda important...<br />
<br />
Will I be able to use the Ubuntu install disk to repartition or not? You said I couldn't use the Windows one, Sideburns, so does that mean the Ubuntu one won't work either?

Sideburns gave you some suggestions for software that resize partitions.<br><br>
Just wondering.. you have a 250GB drive... what are your current partitions? Is there any unallocated space?<br><br>
I have no experience with Ubuntu, so I don't know whether it has built-in capabilities or utilities to resize partitions without data loss.

I really don't find myself needing much space in Linux, so i just give each distro 20GB. I'm not sure if Ubuntu will allow you to do resizing. If you can, it would be under administration and then "volumes" or something like that. See what you can find.

Well, I ended up completely wiping my Hard Drive and now I only have Linux installed.<br><br>
Time to knuckle down and learn this thing...
