Ubuntu: how to add space to ubuntu from an empty partition


I want to add the space to Ubuntu from the unallocated partitions. could you please guide me in this process. thanks.


Try this:

Boot with a live DVD/USB.

Open a terminal,

Press Ctrl+Alt+T

Run it:

$ sudo -i  # apt-get update  # apt-get install --reinstall gparted  # umount /dev/sda7  # umount /dev/sda6  # umount /dev/sda5  # umount /dev/sda3  # gparted  

Now from gparted, you can add the unallocated space to the extended partition /dev/sda3.

Later, you can increase the size of /dev/sda5 with free space below according to your needs.

You can increase /dev/sda6 eliminating /dev/sda7 and recreating the rear end of the free space and increase /dev/sda6 in the amount you need.

In all cases, you must then find the UUID partition and change them in the /etc/fstab file of /dev/sda5:

# blkid  # mount /dev/sda5 /mnt  # nano /mnt/etc/fstab  

File example:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.  #  # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a  # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices  # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).  #  # <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>  # / was on /dev/sda5 during installation  UUID=c676ae51-cb6f-4c0e-b4a9-76850aafa1d6 /               ext4    errors=remount-ro 0       1  # /home was on /dev/sda6 during installation  UUID=df0ce520-b0ba-4e6b-899e-a1a615c8c10a /home           ext4    defaults        0       2  # swap was on /dev/sda7 during installation  UUID=c9eb230e-ab85-4bc0-b24f-06caeac4d953 none            swap    sw              0       0  

Check and change the uuid.

Ctrl + O, save file. Ctrl + X, close nano.

It is also advisable that you reinstall your Grub.

In the terminal continue running:

# mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev   # mount --bind /dev/pts /mnt/dev/pts  # mount --bind /proc /mnt/proc  # mount --bind /sys /mnt/sys  # chroot /mnt  # grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg  # grub-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sda  # grub-install --recheck /dev/sda  # umount /mnt  # reboot
