    hi you should delete drive D and then extend drive C .

    for this purpose copy data form D to external Drive or C (if there is enough space) 

    and the go to disk management and the delete volume D and then extend drive C as you like

  • Hi,

    From your post, I know that you would like to extend the size of your system drive.

    There is a similar thread for your reference.

    You can also try this command under DISKPART:

  • If u were unable to do it from windows explorer try with win 7 cd. While installing win 7 you will get option to select a drive to install OS there click more options button and del D drive and extend c drive

  • I know a partition software named Easeus partition master, which can part your drive in a few minutes and the operation is very simple, it is suitable for any PC users. Then you can part larger partition for your windows drive.

  • It seems to me that ALL the replies to this question have not understood the problem in the first place.  I have the SAME problem with a HP Stream Mini Desktop. 

    It came with a 32GB SSD.  That is it!  There is nothing to EXTEND the C: drive too . It is just 32 GB in size. The D: drive is a USB 1TB drive.  It's got lots of space but it is not part of the C Drive, nor can you EXTEND to it as far as I can tell from the documentation that I read.

    The right answer is to make a SYSTEM IMAGE to an external DISK/ preferably a DVD or USB memory stick and reboot the system from the backup system copy to make sure you can boot from your backup copy.  Then you would shutdown and replace the C: with a bigger one and reboot from the backup copy.  You would use  the SYSTEM RESTORE to copy the backup copy back to the new c: DRIVE.  I would include details, but that is what I am currently looking for before I found this post.

    The answers are all out there if you look hard enough.
