Perhaps a new thread will accept the evidence. Ok this does it. So we have the result, the unallocated space is between C and D, as it had been in the beginning, after my resizing c: some days ago, i.e. c: had been too large, d: had been too tiny, so I had separated a piece from c: into unallocated space, then into a new partition ( since I hadn't been able to join it with d: ), then again unallocated space, etc., etc., etc.). The NEXT screenshot is the interesting (and the last) one. Let's wait the 5 min.
