Need more info. Please post the output from "fdisk -lu /dev/sda" and "df -m /images /videos", and if LVM is involved also the output from "pvs", "vgs", and "lvs".

Without knowing anything about how your drive(s) are partitioned or allocated it is impossible to say how to enlarge sda2.

You can gain a small amount of space by decreasing the amount of reserved space. You decrease sda1 and add that space to sda2. You can add another drive.
