I decided to split my hard drive into two partitions in order to keep my OS (Linux Mint) and home folder separate. The idea in general was nice, but I failed to estimate the sizes of the partitions and ended up in a situation, when one of them is almost full, while the other is almost empty.
My current "layout":
- sda5: mount as "/", currently ~1 GB space left
- sda6: mount as "/home", currently ~35 GB of free space
To add some complexity, while installing Linux I ticked the option "encrypt my home folder", so I guess that as a result the data on sda6 is most likely encrypted.
Also: I have Windows installed on the same hard disk and it occupies partitions sda1-sda4.
I'd like to balance the free space somehow or even merge those two into a single partition - I'm fine with either one. The thing is I don't want to break anything and be forced to reinstall my Linux. How shall I do this properly ?
