Not necessarilly, it depends mostly on your partition layout. What
partitions have you defined - please give device (disk) names and mount

If you are in a situation where you can either temporarily delete a
partition after having backed it up, or shrink an existing one to create
a new one, then you should have some options available to you.

Do a "man resize2fs" and read that.
