I have an IBM Z61m laptop with a triple boot: Windows 7, OSX 10.5.7 and Ubuntu 10.04. This configuration resided on a 160gb 5400rpm hard drive. I decided to make a backup of my drive with CloneZilla and then later decided to put that image on a Western Digital 320gb 7200rpm drive.

Everything is working great except I have about 160gb of unused space that I would love to make use of on this fast, new Western Digital HD. Unfortunately there are already 4 primary partitions on the drive. I tried using Easy BCD version 2.0.2 to resize the Windows 7 partition so that it would use all the new unallocated space. Unfortunately this did not work.

I am wondering if there are any other ways I can go about this.
