Do you have more than 1 simple partition on the D drive?
usually you can see how many partitions are on a drive by checking disk management, or opening a command prompt and typing the following commands
select disk 1 (assuming that disk 0 is your C drive and that disk 1 is your D drive)
This will show you how many partitions are on the drive, if it is just for Data then it should just be one big simple partition.
If there are multiple partitions before expanding your D drive you will need to either delete or shrink the other partitions.
Best way to delete a partition continuing from the command prompt above
select part # (# being the number that is listed for the desired partition you wish to delete. It should say something like 'parition 1 is now the selected partition'
then type the following
delete part override
Now keep in mind doing this will erase all the data that is saved to this partition so if you have anything in it you want to keep make sure you move it prior to deleting it.
Let me know if this makes sense and if I am understanding what you are wanting to achieve clearly.

I think I understand a little better. So specifically that D recovery partition is used for system restores. The real use for it is so that you can create a recovery dvd or recovery USB in the event that you need to reinstall windows at a later date. Once you have that Created then there is no longer a need for the recovery partition. You can delete this space and then expand your C drive.
You will need to open the command prompt as administator. (If windows 8 or 10 right click on the windows Icon on the bottom left of the screen and select Command prompt as admin)
then follow the command path below
select disk 0
select part #(select the partition that has the same size as the D drive, eg 25GB)
delete part #
This should force the system to delete the partition and then all the space will be unallocated. Then you can open Disk management and you should be able to expand your C partition
