The total data storage space of a PC HDD can be divided into at most four primary partitions, or alternatively three primary partitions and an extended partition. These partitions are described by 16-byte entries that constitute the Partition Table, located in the master boot record.
A primary partition contains one file system.
An HDD may contain only one extended partition; the extended partition can be subdivided into multiple logical partitions.
You deleted :
3 208GB 240GB 32.2GB extended
5 208GB 238GB 30.2GB logical ext4
6 238GB 240GB 2009MB logical linux-swap(v1)
I don't believe that you would be able to extend this
ext 4 partition to more than 2Gb (the size of
swap if you had deleted it)
As soon as you restore your data from
ext4 you will need to delete
3 extended partition again, and if you want to make the new partition bigger, you will need to resize
2(make one of them or both less). The extra space you can take is only, in your case, from
2 partitions (both are ntfs in your case). iif you are able to run Windows still, it would be probably easier for you to involve windows software to operate., so I would advise Partition Wizard Mini Tool
As for restoring your partition, if it is from Windows again, try for example Partition Recovery , it promises:
Recover data from deleted partitions (accidentally deleted or using
Restore files from lost partition caused by repartitioning, boot
manager, hard drive crash, virus attack, system installation, etc.
Gat data back from quick or full formatted partition
Recover files from corrupted partition with "Disk is not formatted"
Recover data from inaccessible partition, hard drive, USB drive,
floppy disk, etc.
Recover data from FAT/NTFS/EXT2/EXT3 partition
Restrive data from reformatted volumes or devices
Recover data from RAW partition or when no files can be read from RAW
disk, RAW USB drive, RAW SD card, etc.
Recover data after an MBR corruption
Recover data from improper or other partition errors
Okay, now, if you came to the new partition structure, as can be viewed from your answer below, you can extend your
ext4. Now it is easier, because it became a
primary partition, not
logical as it was before. It is assuming that you have enough free space at
1 partition and you are ready to sacrifice it to another one. So just run Gparted
if you don't have it then install it
sudo apt-get install gparted or from here
1 ntfs, make it less, make your
2 ext4 partition bigger by pulling its left border to the left side, where the
1 ntfs partition ends. Press
Apply every time you want to write changes to the disk.
