    Question about Unallocated Space in front of System Reserv

    I have 16GB of unallocated space in front of System Reserved. I was wondering if there is a way to move the System Reserved to the front. I've used GParted before and I'm guessing im going to have to make a backup of the C drive and then move it around. (and I know, only 10MB free on C drive. It's sad.)Thanks

    I got into a mess when I tried to use Paragon Partition - would have worked I'm sure but it had been so long since I'd used the program that I made a general mess of it all. Eventually ended up doing a re-install. Anyway - one of the leftover messes I've not been able to rectify is a 499MB unallocated area before the SYSTEM partition. So I'd be interested in hearing how this can be merged, moved, etc., in some way.
