One of my laptops has a dual boot configuration with Ubuntu and Windows 7, but Windows 7 ran out of hard disk space. I was able to shrink my Ubuntu partition and extend my Windows NTFS partition using GParted on a Xubuntu 8.04 live CD, however, after I restarted Windows, the volume still had the old size, even as the partition in the Disk Manager (under Computer Management) had the new size. I finally found out that I had to manually expand the volume to the new partition size using the Windows program DiskPart: just switch to the partition and enter the command ‘expand’ (see screenshot below).
