I dual-boot my Linux/Windows XP drive (dev/sda [74.53 GB]). When I upgraded Ubuntu Linux from ver. 7.10 to 8.4, it grabbed my EXISTING Linux partition (/dev/sda2 [24.86 GB] and Linux SWAP file (/dev/sda5 [415.68 MB]), and ADDED THE UPGRADE INSIDE it as /dev/sda4 [8.01 GB], ALONG WITH A NEW swap FILE, /dev/sda5 [1.47 GB]). This leaves me with TWO -- the OLD and the NEW -- versions of Ubuntu on my hard drive.
Linux PARTITION PROBLEM(4 posts)
Continued: My question is, how can I delete the OLD version (7.10) and leave only the NEW version (8.4)? I want to RECLAIM all my hard-drive space the OLD version took up and use it for my NEW version. I do not understand how to "resize" my partitions to do this without messing up my installation.
THANKS in advance for your help. ^o^
