So once upon a time, I had 2 partitions: 800GB for OS X, and 200 for Windows 8. With the 8.1 update, I would like to start using Windows more, and I proceeded to free up 300GB of OS X space, which is now listed on the drive as "Unallocated space".
Now I would like to merge this with my NTFS Bootcamp partition. This has proven extraordinarily difficult because in the Disk Management program in Windows, the unallocated space is to the left of the 200GB Windows partition, and the merge/extend options are all grayed out. My current understanding is that if the unallocated space is to the RIGHT of the Windows partition, everything will work just fine.
I have tried the built in Disk Management, AOMEI, and EaseUs, all with similar failings.
It is worth noting that I tried to format the unallocated space to NTFS with each program, only to be constantly informed that there was "not enough space" to make the change. Even by reducing the target drive size by a full 10GB, it gave the same message.
What do I do?
