I would like to extend a secondary bootable partition leftward (not possible).
To do so, I'm considering taking the following steps:
- Booting from the primary partition
- Backing up the files from this secondary partition
- Deleting the secondary partition
- Creating a new partition that includes the unallocated space to the left and the deleted partition
- Copying the files back
Will this work? The OS I'm planning on backing up/re-copying is Windows Metro RC, and I'm uncertain if there are locked files (or something) that will block the transfer.
