Unable able to extend VOLUME of recovery D partition.

Disk partitioning
opening up disk management, I'm am able to right click on my main partition (c), and have the options of shrinking/extending volume, properties, change letters/path. when I right click on partition (d) the only option that arises is "help". I've also gone to the command line> diskpart>select disk 0> list volume>select volume> extend. this didn t work for recovery (d), but worked fine for (c). this happened all the while I had 48 Gb of unnalocated space.

    Have you updated the system recently?

    You may move free space from another partition on the same hard drive in order to extend D drive. As you mentioned there is unallocated space, it may be possible. Keep in mind, unallocated space is different from free space. Unallocated space usually refers to a volume that has not been formatted with a regular file system, while free space refers to the space on a disk partition that has not been used.

    Once data is on a disk it's tougher to change partition sizes. You may need to defrag the partition to make sure the open blocks are grouped together. Iv'e always had luck with the software program  Partition Magic.
