Yes a tool exists. It is on Windows. I assume that partition is a part
of a number of windows partitions or it may have a windows installation
on it. Start windows to and goto administrative tools, run defrag tool.
It will gather all files into one single block and free disk space.
After that you can run disk managemnt tool and resize the partition.
This tool is available on Windows 8.1 and 10.

Here is a web page with screen shots. I have a non English install and
may guide you wrong.
