Trying to make an extended volume larger

Postby dmshimself » Sun Aug 04, 2013 7:42 pm

I have a 1TB drive which has some free space I've allocated to the existing extended partition, but I cannot seem to add that space to one of the volumes in the partition. The layout is roughly as follows ...

.......3 primary partitions, all working well.......... then

Extended.........Partition........695663....................Extended
------..............Volume..........29969.....................Free Space
VMs...............Volume.........625647.....................NTFS
Docs..............Volume..........40043......................NTFS
New MBR Entry..Partition..........4095......................Boot EMBRM
------..............Partition..........4110......................Free space

What I'd like to do is add the 29969 space to the VMs space in the extended Partition. I am allowed to slide the VMs volume up, but if I try to resize it, I cannot make it any larger.

Any thoughts appreciated as I'm sure I'm missing something obvious

dmshimself,

Slide VMs so there is zero Free Space Before. Then you can resize it.
