Merging primary partition with unallocated space

Hello all...
I have problem that i cant solve for days.. I did most of the things that i found on different forums, used some partition programs but still cant solve this...

1st, here is the picture and i will explain:

I made that unallocated space from partition E and I would like to merge it with partition C, bcs as You can see, i have only 120MB free there... Neither Disk Manager nor some other program can merge it... Also, when i make unallocated space from D partition, then it is between D and E partition and still cant merge with C...

Is it possible to merge that unallocated space with C? I really need more space on C...

TY in advance for help...

It is possible. Methods will be different depending where the unallocated space is located on the disk. That's why we need the screenshot of Disk Management to advise you with the correct course of action.

You still have 19gb of Logical "Free Space" shown there that is not being used and is empty.

You can grab all or part of it for C using the cool new Extend feature on Partition Wizard CD which can add or subract space to any partition from any other partition whether it is adjacent or not, Primary or Logical: How to extend partition easily with Partition Wizard - video help.
