Help with partitioning.

When i first got windows 7 i only gave 20 gbs to the partition, now windows 7 is my main OS and i would like to know how to make that partition bigger and my Vista partition smaller.

I already tried PartitionMagic, but it said my drive was 'Bad'.

Also when i tried uninstalling PartitionMagic i got the BSod. (Had to manually uninstall it.)

I prefer GParted.

You can delete all partition *if that;;s what you want to do(, the I create a 70GB partition for Windows7.

When back in Windows go to Start > Run, and type diskmgmt.msc and you can format the unallocated space or break it down into more partitions.

GParted download:

I don't want to delete the partitions or format or anything like that.

I just want to take about 30 gbs from one partition and move it to the other partition
