I'm trying to extend the Windows partition running on my MacBook Air (Bootcamp is used) without losing any data, of course.
What I have done is that I have used GParted live to shrink the OS X Lion partition and that resulted in some 8GB "Unallocated" space. Now I'd like to merge this "Unallocated space" to my Windows partition. However, GParted live doesn't have any options for me to do so. Disk Management in Windows 7 shows the "Extend volume" option is disabled when I right clicked on the Windows partition.
What have I missed here? What do I do now to add that 8GB of space to my Windows partition?
Is it possible for me to make this "Unallocated" space a common partition which both Windows and OS X can use? If yes, which format should the partition have (e.g. NTFS)? Should this be done using OS X Disk Utility or Windows Disk Management?
I have read the following references but apparently, they are not sufficient to help me.
