The reason you could not extend the space of 7260 is because you have no free space within your extended partition. If you did shrink your 7100 and tried to extend that free space into 7260, it won't work because you cannot extend space from outside the extended partition into the extended partition and vise-versa. With the disk management tools, you would not be able to extend it (7260) without deleting it first.
Heres what you would need to do using windows disk management tools:
1. delete 7260 partition.
2. delete the extended partition.
3. shrink 7100's partition.
4. you now should be able to create a bigger extended partition and thus a bigger logical partition for 7260.
You could try searching for a free partitioning tool, or maybe some one will chime in and let you know of one thats better capable of doing what you need without deleting any partitions. Not sure if theres a free one that will allow to shrink/extend from a primary to a logical thats inside a extended partition though.
