Make the partition immediately after this 20GB partition smaller. Then, make
the 20GB partition bigger.

Since the partition will generally remove any released space at the end of
the partition, you will probably have to delete the following partition,
expand into the freespace and then recreate your following partition. Third
party partitioning software would allow you to do this better.

No problem. Put the hard drive in a vise and pull one end hard for about ten
minutes and this should take care of resizing

Hi, shater.

Numbers! We need numbers!

As John Barnes said, several users have reported success with deleting that
following partition, then extending C:, and then recreating the other
partition(s). But we can't make solid recommendations without knowing more
about the size of the other partitions and how full they may be. The key to
expanding the System Partition is that there must be Free Space immediately
following it. If you don't have that space, then you must create it.

For example, if that 480 GB is a single partition but only 100 GB of it is
used, then you could shrink it down to 120 GB (leave some elbow room). Then
you could create a new 120 GB volume following it and move all the data to
the new partition. Then you could delete the original partition and expand
your first partition to use some or all of that space. And all without
using any third-party products; it's all built into Vista, especially Disk
Management (diskmgmt.msc).

Many variations are possible, but they depend on how much free space you
have or can create - contiguous to your system partition - to work with.
With your 4 big drives, you may be able to just move the data from the first
HD to another one - and then move it back later, if you like.

Disk Management's Help file is somewhat obtuse, but full of useful
information if you can work your way through its focus on topics that most
users never get involved with, such as dynamic drives and GPT disks. Type
"extend" into Help's search box to find a half-dozen pages on this topic.

And while you can do this in diskmgmt.msc, it's a lot easier and more
flexible to do it with Acronis or one of the other third party tools.

You can try the DIsk Management of Windows Vista. It has a nifty utility to "shrink" or "expand" a partition. However, it does not work with FAT.

Partition software can also help you. Such as freeware EASEUS Partition Manager can support vista now.

hi, I think many computer users are meeting with your problems, but some software can't keep data security, but now, it has released a more professional software---partition assistant software.
you can click this site:http://www.extend-partition.com/
I think it will solve your all problems.
