Topic: Can I move unallocated space left and grow sda2 (NTFS) to use it?
I may have got my laptop hard drive into a non-critical predicament. I have Windows 7 and Linux Mint 11 dual booting. Here is a GParted screenshot (using Live CD to make any changes, used GParted under "proper" OS to get screenshot):
I would like to move the unallocated space to the left next to sda2 (OS) which is my Windows 7 installation and doesn't have much space available. I would then like to increase sda2 to take up the unallocated space. The unallocated space was originally part of sda5 (DATA).
I referred to it as a non-critical predicament because the laptop is not really being used so if I had to reinstall then it wouldn't be the end of the world.
Can anyone offer any advice please? Is there any other information I can provide?
Thank you for any help.
