Don't select "merge". You use "Move/Resize" to first shrink and move D: to the right and then you can expand C:
Here is a link to the process at PM.

The example is exactly what you want to do.

He doesn't want to D: to the right, he wants to add space to C: so he has to resize the left of D: to do that.

I gave him the example in my post #20.

Same thing I said only not the same wording. That's why I gave the link. PW example at that link is exactly what he wants.

BFK is the expert on this and knows what he is doing. But, the way I read it, Phoneman was doing the same thing, just going about it in a different order. It seems he would have ended up in the same place either way.

Yeah, but I have my own tutorial showing how to do it.

Sorry, I really did not want to start a class war. But it usually best to follow one line of thought - else an OP will get easily confused.

Ive not yet started this process ive been advised to do. I still need to write an ISO to a flash drive and boot from that and I need a few hours when I don't need my laptop to do it. I will post back when ive gotten round to it.

Thank you guys

If you have data encrypted on your drive, BEFORE you change any partitions, I would remove the encryption or you really risk not being able to get back to your
data.
