    So you want to shrink your file system drive to 30 GB and add the remaining space to another drive? Do you use LVM? – lemonslice Feb 9 '17 at 7:38

    LVM enables dynamic resizing of Linux Partitions, which means you can even resize the operating system partition. It asks you if you want to use it on Elementary OS installer. – SamMorrowDrums Feb 9 '17 at 7:50

    You can get gparted (a partition manager) from the AppCentre, that might help you, it should at least help explain what options are available to you. If you are doing things that you're unsure of though, best back-up first. – SamMorrowDrums Feb 9 '17 at 16:10
  • @SamMorrowDrums while installing gparted it gives, unmet dependency error – user7862 Mar 2 '17 at 13:52
