Hello!

If you can, back up what you have now first, in case something goes wrong. After that, boot to a Live CD/LiveUSB and select Menu > System > Partition Drives (GPartEd).

Run GPartEd, choose the drive and partition you want to 'grow', right-click on it, and select 'Resize/Move'. A new window will open. Increase the partition size to use the unallocated space, select the broken arrow (Apply All Operations), and wait while your partition is expanded.

If I missed anything, I'm sure someone will say so...

Hi everybody

I've recently installed Lite on my ASUS EeePC 1005HA netbook and I'm thrilled with the way it's performing. I have an issue with unallocated space of about 93GB and I want to allocate the entire hard drive to Linux Lite. FYI, I've attached a screenshot of my partitions. I've searched high and low for the answer but it evades me. I only have basic understanding of partitions etc and would appreciated step by step instructions .

Thanks
Paul
