Windows 7: not able to suppress a partition

08 Mar 2015   #1

windows 7 professional 64 bit
not able to suppress a partition

I have an hp Probook 6570b, with windows 7 Pro 64 bits. Hard disk 500 Go
My partitions are
C, NTFS,286 Go
D , NTFS, 156 GO
HP REcovery
HP tools

I am running out of space on C.
I wanted to extend C (right click on C , I can only reduce but not augment)
I tried diminishing D , OK, I get then an space, not alloted, which I can not make part of C
I could even suppress D completely, the content is also on an external disk, but some how
I can't manage to do that.
Could anybody give me a step by step procedure ?
the exponations of Microsoft don't seem to work for me
I also tried to rename D in B so that the Partition is right from C but no avail.
thank you for your help
my windows is in french so excuse me if the translation is not official
