Install a second drive. Partition it as extended, logical. Call it G:.
Copy D: to G:. Rename D: to H: and G: to E:. Verify your new drive E:
apps work. Delete the old drive D: partition. Extend C:

That is, I beliece, because the shrink function operates at the end of a
volume (actually partition). But to increase a volume (partition!) size,
that space has to be available immediately after it.

So for you the only option is 3rd party software, like Acronis DiskDirector
or Easeus PartitionManager
http://www.partition-tool.com/personal.htm

I have used Easeus for that, and it has, so far, worked for me. I used to do
things like that with BootItNG when I was using Win98 and with WinXp up
until about ½year ago...

I have 3 partitions already:
C: Simple Basic NTFS (system,boot,page file,active,crash dump,prymary
partition)
D: Simple Basic NTFS (Logical drive)
Simple basic (EISA Configuration)...this driver has no letter assigned

Shoul I then after I partition D call it G; copy D: to G:. Then rename
D: to H: and G: to E:. Then delete D:?
What would happen with the empty letter drive?
Do I have to format the new H: drive?

I have a Lenovo Laptop

Thanks for your help
