The first step with any partitioning question is to post a screenshot of Disk Management, so we can see exactly how your drive is set up.

Hello zychin,

You can use this sevenforums recommended free software to move the partition to the beginning of the drive and then extend it:-

Best Free Partition Manager Freeware and free partition magic for Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Vista and Windows XP 32 bit & 64 bit. MiniTool Free Partition Manager Software Home Edition.

Here's a sevenforums tutorial on how to use the program:-

Partition Wizard : Use the Bootable CD

Hope that helps!

That appears to be a server OS, so you may run into issues where normal free tools we suggest may not be able to handle it. Usually, for the server line of Windows, paid tools are needed. Partition Wizard is a great app, so check their supported OSes.

Just found a way with EaseUS Partition Manager Server Edition. I make a new partition from the unallocated space and merge the two partitions and split again. Thanks!
