What is no space available to move stretch or copy partitions into the drive after using partition magic.\?


I’m trying to use more of my hard drive for Windows 98. I have a Western Digital 40.0 GB hard drive, Windows 98 and Award BIOS v6.00. I’ve installed Win98 on drive C: that’s a 3 GB partition and created a 6 GB extended partition for drive D: @ 3 GB and E: @ 2 GB. All are formatted as FAT32. But that still leaves me with 30 GB of unused space. I’ve use an lod version of Partition Magic (v3.03) to set all this up.

Now I’ve out-grown this space but Partition Magic won’t let me to move, stretch or copy any of these FAT32 partitions into the drive’s free space. And it only allows me to create NTFS, HPFS or unformatted partitions.

So, what’s up with this? Is this version of Partition Magic just too old? Is it a BIOS problem?
