Windows 7: Can't extend the volume of Local Drive C

Can't extend the volume of Local Drive C

Why can't I add my remaining 500GB unallocated space on to my drive C? but I can extend it on my drive D. Any help will be appreciated.

^^^ Very probably because of using Windows' own Disk Management. Works fine under ideal conditions (example, adjacent partition + unallocated space) but can't do more 'complicated' work.

This one > MiniTool Partition Manager Software for Windows PC and Server will do it.

Regarding all\any partiton\hd task, 1st part of the job is to always save a disk image (or as a minimum all personal\important files) to an external media.

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.
