Dual Boot Win8 Pro and Win7 Ultimate How to increase Partition Size?

I've created a 50 GB partition on the end of my C drive using Disk Management on a Win8 Pro pc. In that partition I installed Windows 7 Ultimate and now I need more space for the software and programs I would like to install.
Is it possible to give the partition more space without starting over ie deleting partition and creating new bigger one?

Use the cool new Extend feature in Partition Wizard boot CD.

It can annex space from any other partition even if it's not contiguous.

I would look for a 3rd party Partitioning software, which fully supports Windows 8, uEFI, GPT & Secure Boot.
Which is signed by Microsoft.
