Partition magic will do it but it is a program you must pay for. There are some free programs out there and I am told some are ok just maybe not as easy to use as partition magic. I have only used partition magic to do this once normally I would back everything up and reformat to do it. I reformat every couple of months anyway so for me it is no big deal.

you could use diskpart, but it's a command line utility. You would probably have to delete one of your partitions to do it though. It can only expand a partition into free space, so it wouldn't be able to shrink the D partition.

the whole process of resizing partition isn't safe. U have 80gb hdd and u have already got 4 partitions? U should have 2 partitions (c, d).

resizing partitions is perfectly safe if you do it correctly. You can have as many partitions on a hard drive as you want. 40 2gb partitions even if you wanted to.

Changing partition size is safest when doing one thing at a time. Decrease D then increase C. You can have as many partitions within the capability of the respective OS's
