I want to extend my volume. However the unallocated space lies ahead of the volume. Is it possible to extend this volume without converting it to a dynamic volume?

I tried to use diskpart with the extend command but it doesn't work. Makes sense because the instructions says that the unallocated space has to be behind the volume.

Since Windows`s disk management surely could not extend the partition when the unallocated space is on the left of the partition, you have to use a third party partition software.

In the link below are described the steps of expanding unallocated Drive Space "From the left".
