Thank for the reply Rich the laptop has 8gb memory and isn't used for anything heavy like video editing so I take it I don't need to create the swap partition?Will the be any problems with the boot loader after removing w10 or will reinstalling Mint sort it out?

General Help & Advice / Remove w10 (SOLVED)
« on: June 01, 2019, 05:33:19 am »
I'm currently dual booting Mint19.1 alongside w10 but I'n now a convert and want to remove w10  .Would the easiest method be to reinstall Mint and choose 'erase disk and Install Mint' and if I did it this way can I still create  root,swap and home partitions  or will Mint automatically set up it's own partitions.If so can I then use gparted to alter the partitions to create the 3 partitions?
   The other option seems to be to go into gparted and just delete the windows partition/s  then reclaim the space for Mint.If I did it this way can the three partitions already created be resized as well?

Sorry Mark try and make it clearer.When I first installed Mint as a duel boot in case the windows side became corrupted I copied my docs,pics music  to Mint from the Windows side.So once Mint is on it's own drive obviously music/ pics will work but how about the other windows created docs.?

Am I right in thinking that any Windows files i have copied/ moved to Mint from the mounted Windows (device) will no longer be usable once the OS's are moved to separate drives?

I though that was one of the reasons but are there any other benefits.Also would it be quicker to copy my files across and reinstall Mint or could I clone my set up as whole and put it on new drive?

Currently dual booting W8 pro with Mint 19.1 is it worth getting a 2nd hard drive( cheap enough) and loading the OS separately?

Might also be worth posting on a pc custom build specific forum.I used one when I was building mine and my parts changed considerably after some very good advice ,unfortunately the Uk one I used is no longer around.
