When you deleted D, what exactly did you end up with??
You need unallocated space in order to extend C. Right click on the D space again (in Disk Management) and "delete Volume". Then it should work.
i have deleted "D" drive which has left me with the following.....
*:WinRE Capacity 1.46GB Used 217MB Unused 1.25GB File system NTFS Type Primary Status None
(without re-typing the headings)
C:Vista 93.88GB 92.67GB 1.21GB NTFS Primary Active&Boot&system
Eata 90.96GB 5.04GB 85.92GB NTFS None
*: 186.31GB 0GB 186.31GB Unallocated Logical None
i would love to screen grab but printscreen doesnt appear to work, sorry
lol a smilee (colon D) seems to have appeared where it should actually say "data"!! At least it was a happy one!!!

i have just received my first warning that i didnt have enough disk space when i tried to update my iPhone with ios5
could somebody please walk me through the steps i need to take with the minitool partition wizard
i've managed to shrink Eata to 48GB which has left me with 42GB of un-allocated space labeled *: on disk 1
is it possible to extend C:Vista using this unallocated space because its not obvious to me
The answer to that question is no!
The spare space needs to be on the original drive (As the C drive), not on another one.
ok, whats my next move then?
if i cant expand drive C any bigger than what it was originally, can i move whole programs like iTunes and my Photos, probably the two biggest users of disk space, onto disk 2?
You must have a lot of user data on C. Why don't you move that. Try this method in this Windows 7 tutorial. It should work in Vista. Unfortunately I cannot try it out - no Vista on hand.
Moving the pictures is one thing that can recover space, so go for it!
