It would be much easier to use free Partition Wizard bootable CD. Free Download Magic Partition Manager Software - Partition Wizard Online DoubleClick on downloaded ISO file to burn to CD.

Boot PW CD, select 1 for Screen Res, rightclick D>Resize, slide left grey border to the right by as much space as you want to extend C into. Click OK.

Next rightlick C>Resize, slide right grey border to the right to take up the space you made from D, OK. Apply all steps.

Partition Wizard : Use the Bootable CD
Where in the tutorial does it show the steps to shrink one partition in order to make the adjacent one larger?

If I posted the tutorial in this case the OP would likely see nothing that pertains to him/her and not be helped as with writing out the steps which took me two minutes.

This has happened before which is why I didn't post it this time.
