Resize primary partition

I have 2 partitions on my disk. I want to expand the system partition C at the disk start and reduce the 2nd partition D to make the space to expand C.


How can I do that? (I would prefer OS Tools or Freeware)

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Right-click on the 2nd partition (the D: drive), select "Shrink Volume", set the amount of space to shrink the partition by.

Quick video on getting to the "Shrink Volume" tool.

Right-click on the first partition (the C: drive), select "Extend Volume", set it to the amount you want and your done.

I know about that function. But if I shrink D would the free space be at the end of the disk? In that case I can't resize C with that space, right? – juergen d Nov 18 '12 at 10:12

MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition did the trick and is free.
