I upgraded from a 250 GB hard drive to a 1.5 TB hard drive. I cloned the data from the old drive onto the new drive. Now I want to expand my main partition (C:) to take up the additional space. Unfortunately, there is a 300 MB partition directly after the C: partition, which I believe is the Bit Locker boot drive.

Is there a way to move the 300 MB partition to the end of the available space so that I can expand the C: partition? Or is there some other way to get the C: drive to take advantage of the additional space without formatting and reinstalling?

You can boot a GParted boot CD which will let you move the 300 MB partition to the end and expand C.

you need to boot off the CD because you can't modify any partitions that you've currently mounted. (Just a bit of extra info) – Kravlin Jun 23 '10 at 5:53
