Default Easiest way to give more space to the C: drive?

Basically I need to give a little more space to the C: drive in windows vista 64 bit, what is the best program to do this with? Should I use disk management included in windows vista or should I use a 3rd party partition manage?

Yeah... I don't think I made myself clear. What if I want to gain 10 gigabytes on the C: drive? I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHAT PARTITION PROGRAM IS THE EASIEST.

Partition Magic, though I think you need to pay

(Not Sure Though)

But does your harddrive have unallocated space?

Edit: Partition Magic 8.0 Free Trial Download - Partition Magic - Soft32.com Thats a trial Version of Partition Magic you maybe able to do through this.

I thought partition magic didn't work with windows vista? Norton PartitionMagic: Overview - Symantec Corp. I see no mention of windows vista.

Partition magic works with VISTA but not very well sometimes you have to make the partition a few times before Vista recognises it.
