    No, not at this way, the OS have to stay D:. If you have a extended
    disk, make a backup from the OS, remove the D:, shrink the C:,
    make a new D: and restore the backup on it.

    Greeetings all,

    Heres my situation:

    Upon installation of my vista business 32bit about a year ago, I
    partitioned my 250GB HD into 2 partitions ~235 and ~15 for data [C:] and
    OS [D:] respectively, which is how it remains today, however I'm runnin'
    out of space on the 15GB and regretting my decision to partition in the
    first place. I've fumbled around on the forums and haven't really found
    a clear cut answer.....ultimately i want to have a single C: drive that
    contains OS + data without having to clean install & lose everything and
    start from scratch. I currently have ~40GB on C: freed up for this task
    if its possible.

    Is there a way for me to copy my OS to the C: partition, delete the D:
    partition, and extend the C to cover what once was D without having any
    problems with or loss of data/settings/OS?? Is this possible with the
    disk util in vista (if so, method please?) or do i have to get a 3rd
    party program? Thanks a bunch.

    What about shrinking C and expanding D using the disk management
    capability in Vista.

    Disk management can't do that. Another option is Acronis Disk
    Director.
