I'm looking for software, utilities, or methods that will allow me to safely resize Windows NT partitions on a Windows 10 computer.

For example in the screenshot I need to increase the size of the "Recovery Image D:"  partition.

How can this be done?

I personally like Partition Wizard for this one.  I'm not 100% sure if you'd get away with the free version, or if you'd need to lay down the $39 for the pro license:  https://www.partitionwizard.com/free-partition-manager.html

there are many partition managers - free and paid
i use the free paragon software : http://download.cnet.com/Paragon-Partition-Manager-Free-Edition-64-bit/3000-2248_4-10904411.html

that said, here's how :
you need to free up space on the drive  - so you can enlarge your recovery partition
i assume the only partition you can shrink is the C: - so right click it, and select shrink - put in how many GB, and let it do it's work
then you need tohave the free space next to the recoverypartion, so you may have to move it first
if that is not the case - you can directly enlarge your recovery partition

Use MiniTool Partition Wizard. It's easy to use and always does its job. It has never failed me. Use this one.
