OP,
I thought you could figure it yourself. But with multiple variations of the same theme you should be absolutely set to go.

BEST FREE Partition Manager Software for Windows supports all 32-bit & 64 bit Windows No-server OS. does a great job and also has a bootable disk to run it.

That would do it Jim, just make sure to back that data up. Your moving a lot of info around on one disk you just never know when irreversible errors may occur.

A backup partition on the same drive is only useful to a limited degree. I recommend to get a large external drive for backup. There are many good buys today on Cyber Monday. A PC without at least one external drive is only half of a PC - at least in my book.

I agree all my important stuff goes on an external usb drive and even on usb sticks for a double of very important data. I have much given up backing up data on dvd cause it become very temporary no matter how careful you are handling them they always windup with scratches or something..So please backup you data or eventually you will be cussing yourself later down the road.
