Do you have more than 60gb empty space?

Yup, you should have enough unallocated space to make bigger partitions. Actually, disk management only allows some basic operations. To maximize your partition performance, you need a 3rd party software, like Easeus Partition Manager. It can help you extend/shrink the partition without destroying any data. I used it several days ago. FYI, its home edition is free.
