Re: Resizing disk partitions
Thanks Will, that was useful. I'm going to need to think about which way to go. Both the start again or partition manipulation options will take a lot of time. I like the start again option as it's clean but it's going to be a lot of work as I have a few apps installed into /opt and have made a lot of custom tweaks to config and script files. I'm not sure I'll find or remember them all when it comes to trying to back them up.
On the other hand moving and resizing partitions is a little simpler and will not require me to have to re-tweak my system. I can wipe the NTFS partition so I can resize it to 10-15GB and then do the install through the recovery utility. I have a Thinkpad so it's recovery plays nice with other partitions and will not mess the other partitions up - I hope.
Now just to find some time.
