Windows 7: How do i change the size of an "other" partition?

How do i change the size of an "other" partition?

Hi.

Lately on my IBM computer i have been hosting a minecraft server. I host this server using Mine OS Crux. This is a free linux operating system that lets anyone host a 24/7 minecraft server.


Just today i ran out of space on the partition it is running on. Partiton wizard looks at it as a "other" partiton. This prevents me from resizing it.......


I just want to give it more space. If anyone knows how to do that please respond....

The Linux program gparted will do it - it might even be included in your "Mine OS". If not, you can download an iso file of a bootable gparted disk, and burn it to CD or USB - then you'll be able to do what you want.

I think that even Acronis Disk Director Suite Boot Disk should be able to do what you want to.
