How to expand a program volume

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I have Windws 10 and a partition in my HD.

I am out of free space in  my program volume (WIN7:C), whereas I get plenty of available space in my Data Volume (Data :D). 

In the "Disk management" window,  I was not able to erase Volume D, but I did shrink it. As a result, I got a non-allocated free space of 260 GB. At this point I right clicked on  the program volume WIN7:C, but I was not able to expand it, since this option was not available for selection.  How could I expand this volume?

Thank you!

I personally use gParted, but that's Linux.


Try a freeware partition tool like Partition Wizard.

I would be nice if you mentioned the model number of the unit.
