I wonder which Partition Manager you are using. But you can use Acronis Disk Director Boot CD to organise your partitions any which way that you would like, without affecting your data

Move the stuff from D to F and delete D. Then you can extend C. Might want to add the freespace to F first.

Boot into free Partition Wizard
bootable CD, rightclick on F, to select Resize, , drag to the right to take up the free space, click OK. Do the same successively to E and then D. Before clicking OK on D grab it's left grey border and slide it to the right to make more space for C, OK, Apply all steps.

You can now rightclick C to Resize, drag it's left grey border to the right, OK, Apply.

If this is not enough space for C, resize one of the other partitions smaller before sliding it over to the right.
