Hello experts,

I have a volume that I need to extend (Data:E) with a free space (green in that picture). How can I do that volume extension?

Ah got it now, the space is no adjacent so I think you are stuck. You have to use some thirparty tools like partition magic

There is a freeware for home users. BACK UP YOUR SYSTEM FIRST BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT TO DO IT

Hi

I think even with the partition tools it will be a tough time since it is not adjacent I am thinking of another way. I will try it once i get hold of a system. What I would try is , extend F: to free space. Then free the space before F: rather than after F: then merge it with D: easy said than done as I have said let me get hold of a system to try it
