how to resize my win7 partition

i read all the topics from here but i am unable to resize my win 7 partition .
i think the problem is that the free space is in the extended partition . how to get the free space from the extended partition without erase or format the other partition (D and E)

I try a lot of programs but no one works becouse the free space is inside the extended partition

download something like Acronis Disk Director and re-size the extended partition to move the free space outside of it.

Sassa that's a different problem.

With only 3 partitions none of them were "extended".

Before you restart/reboot, read the following link regarding boot recovery, if any:

Sassa, it won't work. Because the free space is inside the extended partition.

That method only works if you delete one of the primary partitions which he does not want to do.
