Windows 7: Extend a partition

Extend a partition

Hey guys,

Im looking for a program to extend a partition using free space I have. I used to use a program by Paragon Software on Vista but im not sure if it would work with 7. I dont really wanna risk it considering the drive I want to extend has all my valuable data on so I dont want it to go wrong. It also use to take a really long time.

Does anyone know any other programs which definitely work with 7 and is pretty quick?
Im also running 64-bit if that helps.


Thanks in advance.

Hey Exodus

Parigon Disk Suite 2009 is pretty bullet proof. Im not sure they have a 64 bit version but you could check. If you are worried why not back up before.

If you are running Windows 7 then it must be Ultimate. If the free space is directly after the partition in question then Control Panel=>Administrative Tools=>Disk Management should do it. Of course a backup to be safe doesn't hurt.

Right click on the partition you want to extend and it will tell you if it can extend it or not and by how much.

Thats what my Disk Management looks like, but the Extend option is still greyed out, im not sure how to do it without using 3rd party software.
