    Well, there are two ways by which you can do it:
    1. Use the Disk Management tool available in Windows
    2. Use third party tools like Partition magic


    Which one you use depends on the user-scenario. If it's a simple split of say D drive into D & E, you can use the built-in tool, it'll work like a charm.

    If you're doing something more complicated like a multi-boot with different formats or merging partitions I'd suggest you use something like Partition Magic.

    If you use Windows Vista/7/2008, windows built-in disk management tool has shrink and extend functions. If

    there is unallocated space behind this partition, you can extend this partition with disk management, so

    third party software is not necessary. But if there is no unallocated space behind this partition in Windows

    Vista/7/2008 or you use other windows operating system, such as Windows XP/2000/2003, third party

    software is necessary, such as EASEUS Partition Master, Partition Magic, Disk Director, Gparted, Partition

    Wizard, Paragon Partition Manager….. they are good choice. You can check their forum and official site

    and get tutorial on partitioning a disk.

    Well, thanks StrayCat. I have a few more, but they are on my little blog. But I am not supposed to cross reference to the blog - too bad.
