Make f smaller and add the free space to the drive with low space.
I would just get a bigger HDD myself, maybe two 1 tb's one a usb drive for stuff, media, downloads, images etc.
I have a 750gb for system and a 2tb and 250 external HDD's.

What a cluster?
c drive has 7
d has 8
k has xp
How about you just run the 8 and xp in VM, or 7 and xp in vm with base of 8, etc. This way you can run all three OSes at the same time if you want to
Multibooting was the old way of doing it, virtual is future. Then you could have just 1 partition on your machine, or 2 and not have to worry about giving extra space and having to manipulate partitions. Your just making a file bigger if you need vm to have more space.
Your other option is to change your disk to dynamic - now you can have same drive letter using different partitions on the disk
See how drive F is split... Your other option is to get some 3rd party partition software that allows you to manipulate the start of partitions and then shrink and move your partitions around so that the unallocated space is next to the drive you need to increase the size of.
But to be honest - copy your files you need to keep, or hopefully they are already in your backup.. Blow your disk away, put on the OS you use most, and then run the other Oses you like to use in VM, much cleaner solution!

Not sure why you would need software - just copy your files off to different disk. If you want to use software, then the software that came with the OS for backup should be more than enough.
Are you wanting to backup up the OS, so it can be reimaged back or something. If not then just a file copy to different media is a valid backup.

There are plenty of them that do that - any that allow "MOVE" of partition - easeus freeware version does it even.
As to taking an image of your partitions, So you can put them back - again I would not have enough space in one post to name them all.. Look in the freeware list here on neowin there are a few listed there.
Im a fan of the imageX tool from MS, its part of the WAIK but I do believe you can download just it from places.

Not sure what you were trying to move - but I don't see any partition of 0 size in your screen shots. Seems you may have issues with your partition table as well if your getting errors like that along with this error you mentioned "its a corrupt MFT..."
