I have a HP Z240 Tower Workstation. When I tried to upgrade Windows 10 from version 1909 to 20H2 it notified me that "We couldn't update the system reserved partition."
I've followed instructions that make space available on the partition by removing font files which has allowed me to complete the Windows 10 version upgrade but I'd like to know, is it possible to expand the size of this partition? I'd like to insure this problem does not reoccur in the future if more data is to be written as future version upgrades become available.
GParted allowed me to make unallocated space available to the right of the system reserved partition but it would not allow me to expand it's size. It seems that none of the free partitioning software I can find will allow expansion of the system reserved partition, can anyone recommend a tool which would allow me to do this? Preferably a free tool if one is available.
Any help would be very much appreciated.

there are several 3rd party software apps that can change partition sizes on the fly
aomei partition manager is one such program, note that you may need the paid version to do a reserved partition or changing partitions on a bootable drive (read docs to check)
be aware that you can lose all data on the drive by using this program (or others like this one)
backup critical data first
