I currently have a 250 GB hard disk dual booting Windows XP and Ubuntu 11.04. The main partitions are as followed:
- Windows XP main partition: 160 GB
- An NTFS partition which only contains media files: 40 GB
- Linux partition: 45 GB
The rest of the space is probably in the Linux swap.
sudo fdisk -l from the Ubuntu terminal, I get:
omitting empty partition (5) Disk /dev/sda: 250.1 GB, 250059350016 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 30401 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disk identifier: 0xc0cbc0cb Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 * 1 19663 157943016 7 HPFS/NTFS /dev/sda2 19664 25252 44893642+ 83 Linux /dev/sda3 25253 30400 41351310 f W95 Ext'd (LBA) /dev/sda4 25497 30400 39391348+ 7 HPFS/NTFS /dev/sda5 25253 25496 1959867 82 Linux swap / Solaris
I'm not an expert at partitions and with the above data but is there an issue with
/dev/sda4? They seem to be overlapping each other. What is the
empty partition in the above? If there's something wrong in the above partions, how can I fix them?
