As in Windows if I install a new hard drive I can extend the partition to the new hard drive making it larger using Disk Management tool

Initially when I installed Ubuntu I did not create LVM but used the wizard. I have recently installed a new physical dive due to running out of space on the initial disk and wish to extend the partition to the space on the drive but see no simple way of doing it.

I have played with GParted and read other documentation suggesting I should have created a LVM on the initial installation of Ubuntu, am I forced to reinstall from scratch or is there some command line or GUI tool which will allow me to expand the partition of disk 1 to disk 2 with reinstalling?

Thank You
