Increasing Size of Primary Windows Partition Using Parted
This is my first post, and before my question, let me say as a 27-year-old New Yorker, I sincerely hope the next year is fair and just for people worldwide.
Who knows, maybe free software/open source plays a big role.
If anybody would be kind enough to quickly educate me about partitioning with Parted, I'd appreciate the knowledge!
Here's what I don't understand.
A Windows 2000 desktop has one NTFS hard drive. At the beginning is the 3GB C drive (3GB primary partition), in the middle are the 3GB D and 3GB E drives (6GB extended partition) and at the end is 1GB of unallocated space.
And I don't understand why anybody still has Windows.
Nah seriously, the primary partition had to be increased, so I threw in a Knoppix 3.6 CD and loaded Qtparted. I was only able to add the 1GB of unallocated space to the extended partition. I was unable to use the 1GB of unallocated space for the primary partition.
My questions (all the same basically):
Or I just don't know the right command? (tried Parted too couldn't figure it out)
Maybe I cannot use Parted or any program (to get the unallocated 1GB space all the way across without deleting the extended partition in the middle)?
