    Is it possible to do this : I move all the files from D drive to external hard drive and remove D partition, then merge unallocated space to C, after that make another D partition ?

    Yeah, you could do that................but..............you have only a 256 GB hard drive. Fairly small, which may prove to be a problem over the longer term. You can't accurately anticipate how fast either partition will grow, which leads to crowding the available space and the need for constant resizing.

    I'd at least consider not using a D. Put it all on C, organized by a good folder structure. That way you aren't worried about one partition growing faster than the other.

    You might have some over-riding reason to use a D even with such a small drive. I don't know.

    And you may have a very strong opinion about how fast those partitions might grow.

    And is it possible to do this in disk management without using any 3rd software ?

    Yeah, you should be able to do that in Disk Management.

    Move everything on D to an external.

    Open Disk Managment. Right click D. Choose "delete volume".

    That should turn all of D into "unallocated space".

    Then right click C and chose "extend volume" by however much you want.

    Then make a new D from the remaining unallocated space.

    Or you could add all of what used to be D to C and then shrink C, generating unallocated space, and then turn that into a new D.

    If you had a partition sitting between C and D, you would have to use a third party tool, but it looks like you should be able to do it with Disk Management, judging from your screen shots.

    It's a whole lot easier in MiniTool. Right click on C: drive, select the Extend option. The next window will ask where you want to take the space from and how much space. Then click Apply.
