I downloaded Linux Kubuntu VIA Wubui Installer, can I add more memory to it?


I don't want to partition for Linux just yet, I'm still in the testing phase, but I started torrenting ISO files for Mint 9 KDE and Fedora and other Linux Distros but I forgot that I wasn't using my original 1TB of HDD, but only 30GB which is th maximum I could give it... How can I add more to it without partitioning?

If you weren't using your 1TB drive, it might help to tell us what you were using. Only 30GB of what? A 30GB partition? on what? another drive? 30GB is "the maximum I could give it", what does that mean? What is "it" referring to? You need to clarify your situation a little better to get some help.

I installed Ubuntu 10.10 VIA Windows Installer, so I didn't make a partition, and when I installed it, the default was 15GB, but the maximum was 30GB, it didn't give me an option. If I could I'd give it 100GB of space at a time. I think it's a file on Windows 7 that has a maximum of 30GB space, but I'm not so sure about that... All I know, is that people say it's the easiest way to install Linux Ubuntu without actually partitioning your HDD.

Can't answer your question as I refuse to use Wubi, but some thoughts.
- do your torrents under Windoze, and burn them there instead - use your extra disk space under Win.
- use VirtualBox to test Linux under Windoze - I do so in Win7, works fine. And yes, you can increase the disk space (in VBox).
