I have 3 partitions with the following order:

Backup Partition NTFS
BootIt Partition FAT-16
Windows7 Partition NTFS

it would be possible to delete the Backup partition and resize/give his space to the Windows 7 partition?

BootIt Partition FAT-16
Windows7 Partition NTFS (new partition resized)

Thanks!

Maybe you could:

Delete the Backup partition.

Slide the Bootit partition to the beginning to the now free space previously belonging to the Backup partition.

Slide the Windows 7 partition so it immediately follows the Bootit partition.

Resize the Windows 7 partition to claim all free space.

I must say that I don't know if there is any problem with sliding a Bootit partition.

I would back up the entire drive to another device / media with
verification before deleting / sliding in case something goes awry.
This way you can restore to another drive if you're so inclined.
Best to all and Happy New Year,

There isn't, but it must be done from a bootable BIBM USB stick or
disk.
