Well, if you'd like to tell us what you did, it'd be fun to know

My pleasure. None of the partition managers, e.g. the free gparted, could add space to or move drive C. The unallocated space was next to drive D. I could not move drive C next to the unallocated space. However, the secret was to move Drive D, not C. Then the space was able to be added to C.

Have a good one and let me know if that was confusing!

Exactly, a partition can only be allocated a "straight line" partition and can't be extended at the end of other partitions.
