Extend Logical Drive to freespace or convert

I recently pulled my 2TB storage drive out of a file server, and have since plugged it directly into my desktop.

The drive had 2 partitions; OS and DATA. I deleted the OS partition freeing up 30GB of space, and would like to combine it with the data partition without loosing data.

The data partition is labeled as a logical drive with Extended partition. In windows 7 I can select Extend via disk management, but it fails to convert to a basic disk stating "not enough free space".


Any thoughts on how to either extend my existing partition, or convert the logical drive to a primary partition? I have never had trouble extending a primary partition to the adjacent free space.
