"Hey there, do you know any ways to extend a partition with non-adjacent space? I have almost 150GB free space in my PC, but it’s not right behind the partition that I want to extend. I mean that I’m planning to extend one of my partitions in Windows - D drive. And the free space is laid at the end of the space layout in Disk Management.
