Is the D: partition directly to the right of the C: partition? If not,
then you will not be able to extend C: into the D: one.

You might also double check to make sure that you only have one hard
drive and not two since your first post indicated you may be mistaken
about it.

How would I know if it's to the right? I thought that logical drives didn't
have set "positions" as such?

When you are looking at it in Disk Management, and from the example
screenshot in the tutorial, look to see if D: is directly to the right
of C: . If it is not and say two or more over, then you will need to
use a 3 rd party program like Acronis Disk Director or set it up that
way during the installation of Vista.

It is this is way because Disk Management cannot move fixed files like
the Virtual Page file, System Restore, Shadow Copy, etc... unlike a 3rd
party pay for program.
