    From what you are saying i can understand that we are talking about a Windows machine.

    Now if the 2 partition are from 2 separate disks (you can check how many "Physical" disks you have in the "Edit Hardware" tab, under the "Edit Environment" tab), there is not much you can do, because you can't decrease the size of the disk (you can try and see).

    But if if the 2 partitions are on the same "physical" disk, use windows disk management (diskmgmt.msc)

    just googled some things for you -

    We have been trying the similar approach that you have mentioned in the links above. However, the things that we are struggling with is that to create a continuous unallocated space next t C:Drive we have to remove D:Drive. There is a folder in D:Drive which was present when we created the VM. It does not allow us to delete that folder (folder name is 072a4d9b6e0481e6473ba5e7f611049b)
    We are logged in as Administrator. We need help in deleting that folder
