Redistribute space

Postby fwc » Mon Mar 16, 2009 1:09 am

I have 3 partitions in NTFS which I would like to rearrange. I moved the data off one of the partitions into the other two and created unallocated space from that partition's extra space. Now I can't move the unallocated space from the old partition to any of the new partitions because it seems as if the new ones will not accept more space beyond their original size. Can anyone help me figure out how to expand the other two or am I stuck with three partitions? (I am using the gui for GParted) Thanks!

As stated above, a picture would be worth "many words". One quicky comes to mind while preparing the picture for all of us to see.... are you trying to move "unallocated space" from outside of an extended partition to partition(s) within a extended partition?
