My current partitioning scheme is horrid. I have a 256gb ssd and 1tb hdd in this computer. It is dual booting windows 7 and linux, I wanted to fix this problem a while ago but never knew how. Anyone know any tricks for doing this?

 

How it is right now:

 

256 ssd: 1 part for windows (not being used for the os itself, just some programs)

1tb hdd: 500 for windows (the os itself) and 500 for linux (all parts)

 

how i want it to be:

 

256: 128 partition for windows os, 128 partition for linux os

1tb: 500 gigs for windows, 500 gigs for linux home partition

 

thanks.

 

p.s. i am not sure if this is where i would post this, so if it needs to be moved, could a mod please do so?

Before you do anything with any of the partitions, please use any recognized backup / restore / cloning program, free or fee, to make full images (at least two) of your Data partition onto any affordable, reliable, external media.  For example: I use two usb, external, 1TB HDs for each of my computers.
