    Here is my situation:
    One 500GB HDD. Windows Vista Ultimate. First partition is 100GB, with a HDD called "Operating System HDD". Second partition is called "Main HDD". The size of the Main HDD can vary depending on whether it is back to normal and going at about 400GB (all the way), or being shrunk down to what it is now, 303.40 GB leaving allocation space to the right of it.

    What I want to find out is how to give most (if not all) space to the Operating System HDD, because a partitioned system like this just doesn't work for me right now.
    So far I think I have learnt that the allocation space has to be at the right of the drive you want to extend, but right now it is to the right of the second partition instead. How would I go about extending the OS partition all (or nearly all) the way?
