I have this situation in my pc:

  • sda1 is windows partition
  • sda2 is ubuntu partition

After it there is a free space of 5.7 MB. We believe that I can use it to expand windows though windows partition and free space are not contiguous?

The only method is to

  1. move your /dev/sda2 5.7GiB behind, then
  2. expand your /dev/sda1.

Partitions are contiguous region, they cannot be fragmented.
