If the 7 Gb partition is on the same disk you could try this tutorial How to Extend a Partition or Volume in Windows 7

depending on where on the disk that free space is placed, you will have to use different programs. With Disk Management you can only extend a partition if the space is to the right of that partition. Else you can use : BEST FREE Partition Manager Software for Windows supports all 32-bit & 64 bit Windows No-server OS.
If you post a picture of your Disk Management, we will be able to give you more detailed guidance.

I tried that, but did not work ..
The unallocated is on the left of main Partition ...so the "extend" option is GRAY out .

Try Partition Wizard, that works. I always recommend to burn the bootable CD (on the left of their page. That is handy because you are independent of the OS.
