    Question Partition Problem + Unallocated Space

    I've been running XUbuntu for a while Dual Boot with Vista. I've since decided to remove the partition and move my Linux machine elsewhere.

    My problem lies in re-allocating the space. The 10GB of now Unallocated space lies to the left of my C: drive, and there seems to be no way for that C: drive to take that 10GB of space back. I cant seem to extend the Volume any more. Does anyone have any ideas/ help?

    Thanks in advance for your time.

    Have you tried using the expand command in the diskpart.exe command line program, this is probably your best option.

    I've always used SystemRescueCD for resizing partitions, might want to give it a try.

    Gparted will do this, as will Acronis.

    In both cases the GUI is fairly self explanatory and easy to use. Backup your system fully before attempting any partition changes.
