Windows 7: Can't extend my W7 Partition(I Looked at the tutorial)

Great tool for moving system files blocking shrinkage

There is a great tool (free 30 day trial) to move system files that are way over to the right on Disk Defrag map (I use Auslogics), thus blocking safest shrinkage through Disk Management. Use PerfectDisk10 trial, right click on drive, and choose System files to consolidate all system files. This should free up the extra space to allow shrinkage.

This operation has always worked for me, whereas using any shrinking utility besides the built-in DIsk Management is risky at best.

There are a number of posts where people have tried.

If you want a free one , you might look at MT Partition Wizard.

I have no trouble moving anything with it.

TO move Unallocated space to the lower address spaces with Paragon:

1. Extend the partition to include unallocated space on the right - ( drag it to the right)- click Yes and leave it in the virtual queue.

2. Shrink it from the left (drag it from the left) - click Yes, Click Apply.

Result the Unallocated space is on the left of the system partition:

Ubuntu 10.10 64bit, Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

Here's what I used on mine, since I also use linux. I used Diskpart from my ubuntu 9.04 disc. worked wonders. Of course when you reboot, it'll want to check your hard disk for consistency.
