I take it you are trying to extend D:\?

You can only extend from left to right using W7's software.
You will have to use 3rd party software like Partition Wizard - Best Free Partition Manager Freeware for Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP 32 bit & 64 bit. MiniTool Free Partition Manager Software Home Edition.

Partition Wizard comes highly recommended by people here.
However, when moving partitions around you are better to use the bootable version and not the installed (min tool). I found from experience that the mini tool can be unstable doing partition moves. (Best to have Windows OS out of the way).

Extend Boot Volume
In "Windows 7 In Depth", discussing Disk Management (page 718), the authors say: Is this true? If so, it seems rather an oversight. Has anyone tried it? The book might be referring to Dynamic Disks, or Basic Disks, or both, I cannot tell.
