I know there are so many questions like mine but I just couldn't find out why my NTFS partition won't resize to take the unallocated space that is next to.
Here you can see my partition scheme
So I have
sda1 -> `/boot` sda6 -> SWAP sda7 -> `/` sda8 -> `/home` unallocated (7mb) * sda5 -> this is the partition I want to extend unallocated -> this is the unallocated space that I want to add to sda5
*(I don't care about this, but just to make it cleaner I would put it in /sda5 as well)
When I'm on live CD mode and try to expand the NTFS data partition it just won't do it. It is next to it right? I've seen many questions where the problem was that the partitions were not next to each other but in mine it should be okay I think.
