There are free downloads of Parted Magic, although I can't speak for their 
quality in comparison. It's been a while since I have needed to resize a 
partition like this. (I didn't allot as much space as I ought to have done; 
these new systems keep taking up more and more space, since bigger hard 
drives are getting cheaper and cheaper.) 

I found a free version of gparted as a live CD iso file on SourceForge. 
https://sourceforge.net/projects/gparted/files/latest/download

direct download link
https://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/gparted/gparted-live-stable/0.30.0-1/gparted-live-0.30.0-1-i686.iso?r=&ts=1521342540

This should do the trick for me. I am already familiar with gparted, and it's 
free, and pure Linux.
