Resize HD on Tosh Laptop W7

I want to decrease the size of the C: Drive (the OS), and increase the size of the D: both are on the same HD, and are therefore partitioned. I go to Control Panel / Admin Tools / Disk Management and both are displayed as Healthy C: Primary Partition and D: Primary Partition. I right click on the C: and select shrink and an error dialog box message titled Virtual Disc Manager says Service can not be started because its disabled or no enabled devices are associated? The same message is displayed if are try the above on the D: Your help would be much appreciated. Thanks David

Thanks for your reply I have Easeus Partition Manager, but did not want to install if the simple W7 option worked which it obviously will not. Thanks again David

I tried changing partition sizes on my laptop as the C: had filled up and D: had the other half of the hard disk as unused.

Asked advice on here, got a bit but nothing seemed able to do it so gave up.

Just a thought - have you tried any of these solutions in "Safe Mode"?
