"Hey, don't put capture a guy!"
...Well I've got to put something!

I'm working on Windows 10. I got a new laptop, Acer 15 Nitro.

I partitioned my C: drive, and created a D: drive for media. I have 1TB storage total. I made the C: system drive have 250gig and the D: drive got the other 750.

I want to take another 100 gigs of space from the C: drive, and extend it into (give it to) the D: drive partition. So I selected the C: drive, shrinked the volume the 100gigs I needed, and created the 100gigs of unallocated space.

My problem is this - I can't extend that unallocated space into or give it to the D: drive for some reason. The option to "Extend Volume" on my D: drive is greyed out, I can't choose it off the D: drive's menu.
It will let me shrink or Delete my D: drive partition, but of course I don't want to do that. I just want to give that extra 100gig of unallocated space to my D: partition.

How can I add that unallocated space to my D: drive if the Extend volume option is greyed out? How can I fix this so I can use that extra space from the C: partition I free'd up?

Thanks so much for any help.
