Deleted drive become free space , not able to create new simple volume

I deleted a partition of 97.66GB which was Drive D
Instead of going into unallocated space, it became free space and my Drive E(151.59GB) becomes D.
When I tried to create a simple volume, it gives an error that "there is not enough space available on the disk(s) to complete this operation"

How can I get this back?

  1. Best answer
    In disk management, are there any partitions that come after (to the right of) the partition you deleted? If so, this may be the problem. Disk management reqires that there are no partitions located after the space you are trying to work with. try using Easeus Partition Manager and see if it works for you. Also, if you want to keep your drive letteres intact, go into disk management and assign D back to E.
