    Resize partition


    Is it possible to expand a Win8 partition into free space BEHIND it? I've tried Gedit and Win8 disk admin but none let me do that

    Thanks

    Yes, but you will need a 3rd party Partitioning software like Paragon 12.

    Before doing this be sure you have a backup of all important files on all partitions. These utilities usually proceed with no issues but occasionally things do go wrong, sometimes with disastrous results. Of course you should have a backup of all important files anyway. Data can be lost for a variety of reasons and you need to be prepared when (not if) something happens.
