You can only extend a volume into unallocated space if the unallocated space is contiguous to the volume you want to expand.

In your case, the disk is  EEEEEEEEEEEEFFFFFxxxxxx  where the x's represent free space.

To add that free space to E:, you first need to "slide" F:  to the right, so the disk looks like this:

EEEEEEEEEEEEExxxxxxxFFFFFFF   ==>  Then you can easily expand E:

If you haven't populated F: with any data yet, the simplest thing to do is simply delete F:,  then expand E: to the desired 30GB;  and then recreate F: from the remaining 10GB of free space.

If you have already populated F:, there are several 3rd party tools that make it very simple to "slide" it as needed.    Just post back if you need details.

Copy out data from 10GB partition. Delete it. Extend E: and then recreate F:. Ready.
