Howdy,

What did you use to Partition the HDD when you did this.....Windows Disk Management?

Hello bonk, thanks for your speedy reply, while installing linux it gave me the option to size the partions, so i presume its a feature of the linux installion,

Well to adjust the partition now you will need a third party program like Partition Magic or Acronis Disk Director which will allow you to re-size the partition without losing Data.

Your other choice would be to re install Linux and adjust to what you want.
