This is a common problem in ubuntu which is installed inside windows because of the swap file corruption because of a bug in some ubuntu versions and that file is used to migrate and store ubuntu system and your personal files inside , fortunately you can enjoy ubuntu using full install (you can even do that without uninstalling windows and I will show how) please follow those steps :


 1 – Install Virtualbox https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads (windows version)

 2 – Download latest version of ubuntu https://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop

 3 – Run the program 

 4 – Select New to create a new virtual machine. Then click Next.


 5 – Select a Name for it and then select the Linux system from the drop down list

 6 – Select the Ram allocation its better to leave it by default it will recommend the Ram according your PC performance.

 7 – Select Next, Then select Next , Then Next again

 8 – Select storage space

 9 – Then Next and Finally finish

 10 – Select the Ubuntu ISO file
