Resize Windws 8 and F20 partitions

Hi guys!

As you probably can notice, I am not using Win8 as much as F20. So, I want to extend my /home/ partition and reduce space on the C:\ partition. However, I am not aware of how to do that without destroying the C:\ partition as a whole. Any advice or tips? Also, it would help not to use a LiveCD or USB.

Resize Windows 8 and F20 /home partition

Hi guys!

As you probably can notice, I am not using Win8 as much as F20. So, I want to extend my /home/ partition and reduce space on the C:\ partition. However, I am not aware of how to do that without destroying the C:\ partition as a whole. Any advice or tips? Also, it would help not to use a LiveCD or USB.

James
