See the related question.  I removed all the data from the D drive and deleted the partition, but I still cannot extend the C drive.  What am I doing wrong?

if you right click on the partition what are the options?

also, does it show a partition of free space - with no drive letter? - this would be the old D drive

See the picture - the options are:

Everything else is grayed out.
It shows as Unallocated.

That was clicking on the drive letter.

If I click on Disk 0, I get:
Convert to Dynamic Disk

Can I convert the disk to a dynamic disk?  It currently has 3 partitions, one of which is the boot volume.
