When I installed Linux I was afraid to change to it completely, so I gave it only 50.1 Gb, while Windows got 180 GB. Now this is not enough for Linux, and I want to "take" some space from Windows and give it to Linux.
Here is my partition layout: ( from cfdisk )
/dev/sda1 * 1126400 378613759 377487360 180G 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT /dev/sda2 * 378613760 383422463 4808704 2,3G 83 Linux /dev/sda3 383422464 488397167 104974704 50,1G 83 Linux
/dev/sda1 - NTFS for Windows
/dev/sda2 - swap
/dev/sda3 - ext4 with Linux and GRUB
- Is the correct method to reduce first sda1, then increase sda2, then decrease sda2, and finally increase sda3?
- Will I not destroy the data on the disk in this way?
- Will GRUB on the sda3 partition still boot and give me the choice of Linux and Windows?
