Question to extend installed partition


I installed ubuntu inside windows
During installation i specified a drive (F: size 10 GB)for ubuntu.
After installation some drivers are installed
Now if i tried to install some drivers or updates a message "not enough space on the disk" is appearing
i understood that ubuntu had taken only 2 GB for installation



my question is that can i extend the installed space of ubuntu with out reinstallation?

Sorry, I've never used any linux installers from windows - what do you mean "I installed ubuntu inside windows".
Did you use ubuntu installer that can be run from windows and installed it on a 10GB partition?

When you're in Ubuntu, can you post the output of:

df -h
