1. In Disk Management, right-click the graphic of the D drive (20GB) and choose Delete Volume, giving unallocated space (you will lose any data stored there).

2. Right-click the graphic of the C drive, choose Shrink Volume and the amount of space to shrink it by then click Shrink (make it at least 60GB in size, 45GB is marginally too small).

3. Right-click on the new unallocated space, click on New Simple Volume, give it a meaningful Volume Label and run a Quick format.

NOTE. When you Shrink C, it can only decrease the partition size down to the first unmovable/locked system file. Running a defragmentation may move some of the ‘unmovable’ files. Also, if you’re running System Restore, you could try temporarily turning it off, do the Shrink and turn it back on.

After deleting volume for D drive then when i am going to
Right-click the graphic of the C drive, choose Shrink Volume
and the amount of space to shrink it by then click Shrink
(make it at least 60GB in size, 45GB is marginally too small),
As per your say then one new window is coming:

Total size before shrink in MB: 270101
Size of available shrink space in MB: 0 (option is disabled)
Enter the amount of space to shrink in MB: 0 (option is
enabled)

And down of this Shrink & Cancel box are coming ,,,,,but
shrink option in not enabled.................

Guide me with these details....
