I need some serious help. I have read all of these instructions on extending volume on my laptop, I get as far as right clicking my C: Drive which has only 13% free space left on it. I right click to extend it, but it stays grey and unclickable. I tried to shrink my D: drive which has 100% still the extend D:, but nothing has worked. Any replies would really be appreciated.

Try obtaining a copy of Partition Magic, or the Acronis Software. This will allow you to give more free space to your c drive by deleting the D partition completely and use that space, or just to move the free space over. But it all depends on if they are 2 different hard drives, or just 2 partitions.

Yes, but 100% of what? What is the partition size?
Don't forget you probably have a recovery partition,also
