Get Paragon , Partition Wizard cannot do this.

Follow these instructions - it is simple:

That will shrink the Extended partition - without damaging the Backup drive.

I just did all that and took and posted the screenshots in the past few mins.

Also see my previous post.

Mitch is out of downloads for now, and I can't connect thru his router to remote it for him until he opens port 3389.

Mitch, open PWiz, rightclick Backup>Resize to see if it will let you slide the left border over to take up all the Free Space. OK but don't apply yet. Post back screenshot.

SIW2 is there a way to do this with PW?
