How to Redistribute Free Space in Windows 7?

The necessity of redistributing free space

Meanwhile, C: drive keeps running out of space, how can we make use of the free space to enlarge C: drive? As we know, there is "Extend Volume" feature in Disk Management, to extend a partition, there must be contiguous unallocated space behind it.
