Thanks for this brilliant tutorial. Is this applicable for a dual boot linux/ubuntu and windows 7?

I currently have four partitions -

2 Partitions host the OS
1 Partition is a SWAP for Linux
1 Partition is a Shared Media Storage (which is NFATS I think...)

Would this tutorial work in this case!

THANKS!

Hello lister.



You're welcome, I hope it'll be a help to you.

I'm not sure; can we see a snip of the disk management of the machine in question?

Hello mobifreaksam, welcome to Seven Forums!



You don't need to use the Partition Wizard program to do that.


First, use the method in this tutorial.

Partition or Volume - Shrink


Second, use this one.

Partition or Volume - Create New
