    Yes, Windows 7 disk management has the feature of shrink and expand a partition, improved the ability than the former Windows version, but there is still huge disadvantage that if there is no unallocated space behind a partition, you cannot expand it. For example, you cannot expand the os partition by shrinking the following partition, only choice is deleting the partiton below and then expand the OS. Some third party software can resize the partitions, but don't know whether they are secure enough.
    I saw a article with detailed steps about how to resize by Windows 7 disk managment and another free partitioning software
