Extending partition in Vista?
At the moment I have a 37 GB Western Digital hard drive with Vista and XP dual booted on it. I am running out of space obviously since the drive is so small. I'm going to buy another drive to put XP on. I deleted my XP partition and right now it is setup as unallocated space. I want to extend my Vista partition to take up this unallocated space, I want it to use the whole hard drive, all 37 GB. The unallocated space is 10 GB. The disk management tools in Vista will not let me extend the Vista partition to include this 10 GB space. Are there any free tools I can use to do this? I tried formatting the unused 10GB space as an NTFS partition but it still won't let me extend my Vista partition to include this space.
I would really prefer not to have to wipe the whole hard drive and install Vista again.
