  • When you ask a question and you receive answers into StackExchange they are not only for you but for everyone who has the same question later to be able to view the answers instead of asking the same again and again and again. For this reason it will be better when you have 3 questions to ask them into 3 different topics, because for example I can give you an answer now for one of your questions, but you cannot accept it because you have 2 more. So if you want to participate into the community properly I recommend you to divide your list into 3 different questions.

The easiest way is to create a USB key with Elementary Os and boot on this key.

Choose "try", then using Gparted, it is then very simple to shrink the partition which contains Elementary on the hard drive of the PC, then to create a new partition with the amount of available space.

Have a nice week end !

assuming you have free space on your disk - boot to a live distro that has graphical gparted tool in it - resize your / partition down to whatever you are comfortable with - boot back to your running OS on the hard disk to verify disk okay - with the free disk space create another partition - create a filesystem (maybe ext4) for this partition - create a mount point for this new filesystem - mount it manually to test it out - add new partition to /etc/fstab

Damn ... why isn't this post formatting correctly
