Resize partition in 7...

I have a dual boot XP/7 system with XP as the first partition, then 35GB of unallocated space, then the 7 partition (don't ask ;-)), then 130GB data partition .. anyway I want to extend the 7 partition back into the unallocated space.. how can I do this..

... I'm NOT going to use Acronis having spent 2 days trying to get my hard disk in usable order again .. and I've tried DISKPART but can't seem to get it right.

Open up Disk Management, and select your 7 partition. Right click and say "Extend partition" and add the 35 gigs or whatever.

Remember that if there is no unallocated space behind a partition, you cannot expand it. If the 35 gigs space is front of Windows 7, you cannot expand it by "Expand" feature, you have to use other tool to move the unallocated space behind Windows 7 partition. Maybe this article may help you, it contain the methods of Windows 7 Disk Management and another free third party tool. http://www.hdd-tool.com/partition-ma...on-manager.htm
