Extending Logical Drive volume in Windows Server 2003 (VM)

Hello Experts. I am having a difficult time extending the volume of a logical drive on a windows 2003 virtual machine. i have tried diskpart, but receive the attached error 1. the error 'The volume you have selected may not be extended. select another volume' appears. Please let me know how to extend this logical volume. i have also attached a picture of diskmgmt.msc screen so you can see the unallocated space is right after the logical volume. Thanks in advance

Excellent points Lee.

Before trying anything BACKUP YOUR DRIVE!!!!

If this goes sideways, you want to be able to recover from a problem.

in diskmgmt you have to click on the green area and then extend it then you can extend the logical drive inside

Have to apologize I was using an apples and oranges answer.  you will need to use a 3rd party partition tool like gparted
