To increase size of a system partition by taking unused space from any other on-disk partition, please do the following:
1. In the main window select the required hard disk (if several) on the Disk Map.
2. Choose a space donor partition and then call the context menu for it (right click of the mouse button) to launch the Move/Resize dialog.
3. In the opened dialog shift the edge of the partition to the right by the drag-and-drop technique. While doing this, free space from the partition will be released (displayed in aqua-green). You can also do it manually by entering the exact size of free space. Click the Yes button to continue.
4. Now you’ve got a block of free space to add to the system partition. You cannot do it directly however, but by carrying out a number of extra move/resize operations.
5. Since the block of free space is within the extended partition, you need to take it out first. The program enables to resize the extended partition only when there’s a block of free space adjoining its borders. In our case it’s between two logical disks. So we need to move it. To do that, please select the first logical partition and then call the context menu for it (right click of the mouse button) to launch the Move/Resize dialog.
6. At first shift the right edge of the partition to the right, then do the same with the left edge. Make sure the partition size has been left unchanged.
7. Now you can resize the extended partition to take the block of free space out of it. Call the context menu for it (right click of the mouse button) to launch the Move/Resize dialog.
8. In the opened dialog shift the edge of the extended partition to the right.
9. The block of free space has been released.
10. Now you need to move the second primary partition just the way we did it with the logical partition to make the block of free space adjoin the system partition.
12. In the opened dialog shift the edge of the partition to the right, thus increasing its size.
13. Apply all introduced changes. By default, our program works in the virtual mode of execution, so you have to confirm all operations to let the program accomplish them. To do that, just click the Apply button on the Virtual Operations Bar.
14. The program will require the system restart to accomplish the operation in a special boot-up mode. Click the appropriate button to agree.
