I am currently running Ubuntu 11.04 (narwhal), dualbooting with Windows 7. When I installed ubuntu, i gave it a small(er) partition size for it to use (10gb total for swap and main partition). I now find I have run out of room on my Ubuntu partition, and want to (if possible) shrink down my Windows partioion and move some of that freed space to Ubuntu to expand it.
I tried to use gParted from a live Ubuntu CD, but I can't seem to move any unused space into the Ubuntu partitions. Am i doing something wrong?
