I installed ubuntu with dual boot alongside Windows 8. While partitioning I allocated 9.8 GB to the root directory of linux.Now i am short on space with only 700MB space remaining in this root directory. I cannot delete this OS because i have important application and files which run only on the Linux environment. Is there any way i can shift the root directory to another partition(I have an empty 17GB partition /dev/sda12 ) or increase the partition size?
This is how my partitions look like-
The error messgae when i boot into Windows is:
File : \Boot\BCD Status : 0xc000000e Info : The boot configuration Data on your PC is missing or contains errors
