thanks a lot Rindi,

could you please suggest a good & cheap 3rd party tool which  i can use without deleting D: Drive?

You can boot the Server using a liveDVD like PCRepix, and then start GParted which is included on it. IF the OS properly recognizes the RAID controller the RAID array should be seen as one disk and not as the actual disks that make up the array. You can then use that tool to move D towards the end of the Virtual disk.

But you should still rather follow good practice and just move out from C what shouldn't be there in the first place.
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.
