Extending OS X Partition

Hey guys,

I'm trying to extend the OS X partition into free space on the hard drive, however disk utility only seems to be able to extend into space listed below the partition, however my OS X partition is at the bottom and the free space is above it - shown in the screenshot attached.

 

Is there any way to move the OSX partition further up to allow it to be extended into the free space?

 

Cheers!

Nope,

 

1) Delete the Time Machine partition

2) create a new HFS+ partition on the full size available

3) use CCC to clone your MacOSX partition to the new partition

4) run whatever boot enabler you use on THAT partition

4) boot from it

5) delete the old MacOSX partition and create a new Time Machine partition...
