I'm trying to dual boot Windows 10 and Ubuntu 14.04.3 from a USB stick.
Really quick question, when I partition my hard drive in Windows and create unallocated space for the Ubuntu OS, is that space meant solely for the Ubuntu boot files and the rest of the hard drive will be shared between both of my operating systems for storing stuff, or am I setting the amount of hard drive space that Ubuntu is allowed to use overall?
For an example, if I make 20 GB of unallocated space on my hard drive and install Ubuntu onto that space, will that mean Ubuntu only has 20 GB of hard drive space that it can use? Or will all of my empty hard drive be usable and that initial 20 GB of unallocated space I created is meant for storing the boot files for Ubuntu?
I'm planning on storing large files onto Ubuntu and manipulating them just to try it out, I just want to get it right the first time and not have to go through the trouble of uninstalling, repartitioning, and trying it again.
Thanks! Tell me if the ? doesn't make sense and I'll try to explain better.
