Trouble moving a partition on a dell T610 Server

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have a client with a Dell server T610 running 2008 R2 64 Bit server. The server is configured with an raid 5 array consisting of a basic drive of 2.23T

Currently the disk is divided into 4 partions:
OEM  Partition: 39M
Recovery: 3GB
C: 40gb
d: 1965.42gb

There currently is 40gb of unallocated space between C and D and 185GB space after D.

Originally the D: drive was a full 2T after C, but what I'm trying to do is move D to the end of the drive and expand C. I've tried three different partition manager programs, and none of them seem to let me move d into the space at the end. At one point I though maybe since it was maxed that it could be the problem so i even shrunk D by 40gb (which is why there is space  in in front of it) to see if i could expand into the unallocated space. No Dice. 2 programs (minitool partition wizrard, and Paragon Partion manager) doen't show any space available after the partion when you go into the "move/resize" screen. The third product (EASEUS Partion master) shows the space available on the move/size screen but won't let you slide it over or manualy reduce the space after.

All Three programs show the unalocated space on the main partiton table screen.

Any one have any ideas? Thanks.
