The unallocated space(10 GB) is currently right after the D:drive from which it was freed.How do i now move it to C drive to increase its capacity?

I have used Gparted Live CD to do the job.Now the the D drive(which i shrank)is sandwiched between C drive and the unallocated space.

Answers

Make a backup, boot from a LiveCD with GParted and partition the drive as you want it.
