HOME ยป Ubuntu

hello, i dont speak english very well. I thing i have an issue, i installed ubuntu 14.04 with separate partitions /boot=2gb /(/root)=100gb /home=50gb /swab=12gb and others, so i checked the free space with gparted and i surpriced /(/root)=100gb its 100gb free space its empty. the others partitions get informations like usage space but /(/root) not. Could you like to explaint me whats happen in that partition?
i get into /home 30gb free space and 50gb usage space. but My ubuntu 14.04 run very well so if its free space in /(/root) maybe i get a resize this partition to 20gb or 50gb and put it into /home to get more free space.
Last time when i has ubuntu 12.03 every partition gets usage space /home /root /boot /usr /var and ran very well. i didnt found explication to the free space into /(/root).
Regards.

Hello, I just bought a new laptop I'm planning on installing Ubuntu (never used Linux before) on it when I get it. I also want to leave Vista on it.
This is the install method I plan on using: http://www.herman.linuxmaniac.net/p24.html
I have a few questions:
1. When I partition my hard drive, will I ever be able to add to my Windows partition later or am I stuck with whatever size I choose from beginning?
2. If I ever decide to add a second HDD is there an easy way to copy the Ubuntu OS + Files over to the other hard drive so I could have a dedicated HDD for both OS's? Would it be a simple process of just copying and then deleting

I have my free space made and am doing a manual partitioning but I have a few questions. My Windows setup already has two partitions a "recovery partition" and the main Windows partition. What I need to know is how many more partitions I can make, I've heard there is a limit; is this limit on primary and logical partitions (what is the difference between these)? I also don't know if partitions should be at the beginning or end.
Here is my ideal setup: [Windows Recovery] [Windows] [/Home] [/] [swap]
But I'm not sure if I'm able to do that with a SATA HDD. Do all of these need primary partitions? Thanks.
P.S. Sort of unrelated question but

I would like to install Vista 64 and Ubuntu 64 on the same computer. I have Vista installed already, in fact. From what I've read so far, this is the way to go, install Vista then Ubuntu. I also want to have a shared dataspace between the two OS's, so I can acess my media and documents regardless of what I boot into.
I have a 750 GB hard drive. How would you recommend I go about partitioning this thing out? Can I get people's opinions on this and most importantly, reasons why you say to do something different. Anyhow, I was thinking of doing this:
Vista - 100
Data - 500
Ubuntu - 100
Swap - 5
Unpartitioned - 45*

Hello all!
looking at my disk configuration, I'm seeing some weird things I'd like to understand.
1- On sda, I installed Windows XP on a 20GB partition and I created a 60GB NTFS partition. However fdisk shows 3 partitions? Why? Is there an extended partition? Can I make it a primary partition without destroying everything?
2- I want to create an image on my XP partition (sda5), with this configuration, will the restoration work?
Here is the description of my file system :
Code:
Disk /dev/sda: 82.0 GB, 81964302336 bytes
Partitioning questions !
Ubuntu
Hi,
I dual boot Ubuntu 10.10 with Windows 7. When I started with Ubuntu, I was planning to only give it a little bit of room because I was only going to mess around with it sometimes. Little did I know that I would come to use it nearly exclusively!
Because the partition for Ubuntu is pretty small, I've started getting low disk space warnings. I used the live CD and fired up GParted to adjust the partitions. I shrank the Windows partition down to make more room for Ubuntu and it is here that I'm having problems. I can't make the Ubuntu partition larger than it already is. There are also two large gray bars in GParted that say "unallocated space."
