    Increase my Shrink volume in partition

    Hi Guys!

    Can someone help me with my problem. I'm planning to install dual boot in my laptop (Windows and ubuntu) but sad to say my shrink volume is very little. Is there any software or way to increase it. Please help me.

    Thank you!

    Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
    I'd use free mini tool personally
    Best Free Partition Manager for Windows | MiniTool Partition Free

    I'd also not dual boot on the same disk and share data disks or partitions with linux
    If you want to dual boot do it the old fashion way and install linux on it's own drive all by it's self
    I use one of these one slot for the iso's and one for data disks Vantec 2.5-Inch Dual Bay Trayless SATA III - 6G Mobile Rack (MRK-225S6-BK): Computers & Accessories

    I like a simple life and the linux grub there is nothing simple about it when it goes badly :)

    On a laptop there is always cd/ dvd conversion trays.
    But it's best to use VMWare and run linux in that environment.

    The image don't show all C disk partitions. Also enlarge the Status column.
    Before you play with disks, BACKUP. Backup everything.
    Do you have the factory recover disks so if something goes wrong you can restore it?
    I totally agree with TrashZone. Don't put Windows and Linux on the same drive.
    Install Linux to another drive. Linux can be installed on a 32G USB flash drive.
    Anyway, detach ALL your other HDDs from the MB before you begin Linux installation.
