4.Click "Apply" on the toolbar to take changes. Other buttons, "Undo", "Redo" or "Discard" are used for correction. Several minutes later, you will find that adding unallocated space to system partition is done:
So, with this all-in-one and easy-to-use program, we get the best and easy method to add unallocated space to system partition for Windows 7.
hi there, i tried that to extend to the left with Gparted. Now my windows 8 does not boot and mentions a 0xc0000225 error code. When i try to repair, it does not find error. When i try to refresh, it says that the disk is Locked and that i have to unlock it. Now... i don't know what to do.
I had a similar situation where I wanted to extend a partition to the left, but I didn't want the data moved to the start of the new partition (it takes too much time, causes unnecessary reads/writes, etc.).
My solution used AOMEI Partition Assistant, but other tools might provide similar functionality:
1) Create a partition in the unallocated space. For example, call the new partition D.
2) Merge the new partition ( D: ) and the exiting partition to be extended ( E: ).
3) In the merge options, have D: merged into E:. This will create a folder in E: (which will be empty, because D: is empty). If this is reversed, you'll end up with all your data from E: in a subfolder of D:, and you'll have to move it. The move will be quick, but it adds an unnecessary step.
