    Windows 7 inbuilt partition shrink or extend does it for free (non-destructive) for many jobs. Plus there is Easeus free edition (non-destructive) and gparted

    If you have bought Windows 7, then it's free. Can you see the word "inbuilt"?

    It looks you're spamming :p. If Partition Assistant is that good as you slightly mentioned, can share more about it? I personally think Paragon HDD Manager is the BEST

    Except it can only shrink contiguous empty space, which means that you can only shrink it as far as the closest piece of data. A proper partition manager can of course move this data and hence doesn't suffer from such issues.

    Trust Partition Wizard Boot CD and Easeus for more versatility than windows 7. Free versions of both are better than windows 7.
    For windows environment, Paragon HDM backs up and also partition operations.
