I think it is complaining because you already have 3 Primary Partition and an Extended Partition.

Option 1
Can you expand D to use the unallocated space?

Option 2

Back up the contents of D and then delete it.
Reallocate the combined space (30 + ~98 = ~128 GB) as 2 Logical drives.

You can add a Logical partition in the Unallocated space using free Partition Wizard which is more flexible in this particular operation than Disk Mgmt.

GParted is another option.

Given the choice, I'll use GParted before Windows Disk Management every time.

Not sure if this belongs here or in Performance & Maintenance. We just got a Dell Inspiron 1750 laptop with Win 7 HP preinstalled. Dell already configured it with 3 partitions: one for the "recovery partition", one for Dell Apps., and one for Win 7. I wanted a separate partition for my data. So,...
