No, unless you make a mistake. It is always prudent to image a partition that you are about to manipulate.

In a word, no.

Hoiwever, it is always prudent to back up anything you don't want to lose whenever you are undertaking any form of disk management.

LOL Andrew - we used nearly the same wording and at the same time. Something must be right.

Problem is that you have no unallocated space - only 'freespace'. The partition in which the freespace is you have to delete. Then you can extend the partition (new volume) that is immediately to the left of it.

That should work. But if it does not, try Partition Wizard. Free Partition Magic alternative, partition manager freeware, partition magic server, partition magic Windows 7 and free Partition Manager software for Windows 7/8/VISTA/XP/2000 and Windows Server 2003/2008/2000.
