Here is the scenario. I have windows 10 and Ubuntu 17.10, dual boot, on an SSD:
Disk 1: C:(NTFS) 50GB - Primary partition Other (EXT4) 51 GB - Logical partition Unallocated space 11 GB
I am trying to extend the
EXT4 partition with the unallocated space but no tools that I have tried will let me. I assume (please correct if wrong) that it is because it is a logical partition.
My question is really 2:
- Will changing the partition to primary allow me to extend it?
- Would changing the partition to primary break the Ubuntu installation?
Ubuntu is my main OS on this box so would love to not break it!
UPDATE: More info
From the above image I can see that the unallocated space is outside of the primary partition so I cannot extend my logical partition using that.
Am I right in assuming that I can't extend my primary partition (
/dev/sda2) as it is currently mounted and that I will have to boot into gparted in order to achieve what I need?
