rootfs 0 size left


I have bought a laptop computer and installed Ubuntu Linux. I do have 160GB hard drive, but due to mis-configuration, I have 0 size left after I installed Ubuntu. Does anyone know if I can get arround this problem without re-install the Ubuntu. The thing is that I have duo boot with WinXP on this laptop also. How can increase the files system size for Ubuntu.

1. Back up important files.

2. Reinstall Ubuntu after choosing a better partition size.

3. Restore backed-up files.

You have 160 GB of hard drive space. Windows can use up maybe 20 GB. This leaves 140 GB of space. If you fill up 140 GB of drive space installing Ubuntu, definitely post again.
