    Move partition to the left that is more than 1/2 the disk

    I have a bay trail tablet running windows 8.1 with a 32GB eMMC. It has 5GB as recovery, 9GB as Android and 14.5GB as Windows. I can't seem to move the 14.5GB Windows partition to the left of the Android partition so I can delete and extend the Android partition. Do I have to reinstall Windows just to get that extra 9GB?

    Also, I don't really care about backing up the tablet because it's a new install.

    You can try to extend the Android partition with the bootable CD of Partition Wizard:

How do I move my boot partition to the left?
I was dual booting with Windows 7 and I deleted that partition. It is to my understanding that I would need to move the Windows 8 partition to the left before extending it. Do I need to use a CD, or can I do it from a program? Thank you.
