You might be able to do it with Windows Disk Management.

Can you post a picture of your Disk Management screen so we can see your current partition arrangement?

Here is how.

2, Select Disk Management
3, Locate your Drive on the Left and Click on the C Drive.
4, Right Click and only if its Dark text select Extend Volume...

This willl give you options and allow you to do so.

Other options are, Move your Email folder too another drive.

Unfortunately you have converted your HD to a Dynamic Disk, which was probably offered to you when you attempted to add a fourth partition. Dynamic Disks are meant to span partition on separate HD's, not on the same HD. It would be best to convert it back to Basic.

In order to extend C you will have to delete or Resize D to make space for C to expand.

To non-destructively convert Dynamic Disk back to Basic use free Partition Wizard 4.2: click on Disk, then choose Convert Disk to Basic on Disk tab, click OK, then Apply.

This is only available free in PW v. 4..2 downloaded here: partition wizard 4.2 free.zip - Windows Live

Next rightclick D partition to Resize, slide left grey border to the right to make room to extend C, click OK.

Now Resize C, extend right border to right to take up space you made, OK, Apply all steps.

Always back up your files when doing a conversion or repartitioning.
