Ubuntu – GParted can’t resize partition, but unallocated partition is available

18.04gpartedpartitioning

I have few partition like this:

GParted

And I want to take the unallocated partition and resize it to /dev/sda12.
But when I try to do that:

Resize button isn't enabled

I can't increase the size.

I have do it in Live Mode, and I have tried to the others partition, but still can't do it.

How do I solve this problem?

  • Partitions need to be exactly above or below the unallocated space to get resized. Here you can extend only sda15, sda5, sda8, sda9 & sda10 partitions. Moreover unlike Windows Ubuntu can't work on dynamic disks, so it is impossible to extend the partition using the partition which is very far.
