How do I give Ubuntu 10.10 more space (when installed inside Windows 7 (via wubi))?

I installed Ubuntu 11.04 under Windows (using Wubi) and the default size for the "partition" was chosen as 10GB. Now it shows frequent issues due to low disk space. How can I increase the size of partition without reinstalling?

As Marky suggested in the comments, you can resize the disk image of a Wubi installation using any of these methods (written by bcbc).

Alternatively, you can free up space in your Wubi image by moving some of your documents or other files like music, ebooks, or videos (just not programs or system files) to the host Windows system's partition (accessed as /host in your Wubi system).
