    Being told my C drive is unavailable


    I was browsing news articles on Microsoft Edge when a box came up and an alarm sounded. A clock was counting down and I was informed the computer would be wiped unless I pressed the button. I didn't press it, instead doing a ctl-alt-del and restart. Everything seemed fine on initial reboot and I assumed it was a phishing stunt. Checked my Norton security and it reported everything fine, no bugs. It happened again a few days later so I did the same again, but have not been able to access existing Word docs since - although I can open a new Word document - and now it's saying my C drive is unavailable and might have been moved or deleted. Please help? I am not a techie, as you can probably tell.

    :)

    Being told my C drive is unavailable

    Unallocated Space to C Drive

    Hi Travis,

    It appears that a disk partition was created but was never assigned its allocation. Assuming there are no files stored in the unallocated partition, perform these steps to combine it with your C: drive:

    • In Disk Management, right-click on (CBeing told my C drive is unavailable :) which appears next to the
      Unallocated partition.
    • Select Extend.

    Let us know if you're able to combine the spaces after following the steps above.

    Regards.
