If you cannot directly move the EXT3 partitions, just copy them to an external hard drive, delete the original ones on the HDD, move the unallocated space to E drive, and then copy the EXT3 partitions back. Would take some time. And backup the whole disk before doing this. BTW, Easeus partition master is really a good freeware.

I had a similar situation recently. The problem is free space MUST be adjacent to the partition you want to extend. Since that isn't the case you can't "extend" the partition. However, you can "merge" free space even though it isn't adjacent. The only free partitioning software that I found that can do this is AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard Edition.

Make sure you use "Merge". Also, since your free space is in two separate locations you would have to do the operation twice.

IMPORTANT! Partitioning is serious business. Make sure you backup before attempting this.

Anyways, Thanks for the tip :)
