Best way to resize unallocated space into an existing partition

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

I currenlty have a 750Gig WD black that I split into 3 parts. I no longer needed one of the 3 parts so I returend it to unallocated space using Disk Manager in Windows 7. I figured I would extend the space from the smaller of the remaning 2 into this space, but it converted the drive into a dynamic drive and when I went to create a system image using the built in program it basically said not to save it to a dynamic disc. So I was thinking I could convert it back to a basic disk and use a third party program to resize the partition so it could remain a basic disc. What would you all recommend for doing this?

Thanks!

Any Linux live cd containing gparted will do. My personal favorite is PMagic. http://partedmagic.com/doku.php#.URMKhN0Qoms

Look for any partitioning software that allows for partition merging for free. You should be able to select a partition, then select the un-used partition and merge the two.
