    Hi, I have re-installed windows 10 in my HP laptop. There is only ~20GB volume in C drive. I need to increase the volume of the drive. So, I have unallocated some volume from other drive but this unallocated volume ~63 GB is at the left side of the C drive attched images for clear understanding and that why I could not extend my C drive by right clicking at the C and tapping on "extend volume" option. This "extend volume option" is greyed out. So has there any option to do so without using third party software?

    :)

    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 (CHow can I extend my C drive in hp laptop; windows 10 from an unallocated space which is at... :) 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.

    extend c drive storage space

    Hi, I'm , an Independent Advisor.

    Disk Management is a Windows built-in tool that supports to increase partition size with its "Extend Volume" feature. However, the program has some limitations in increasing disk space:

    - Extend Volume only works on NTFS and RAW partition. FAT32 and other file systems are not supported.

    - The Extend Volume will grey out if there is no adjacent unallocated space behind the target partition.

    So, the ways to increasing C drive with or without adjacent unallocated space are different. Open the Disk Management, and follow the right tutorials listed below to extend the local disk C drive on your own now:

    #1. Increase C Drive Space with Adjacent Unallocated Space

    Step 1. Right-click This PC/My Computer, click "Manage", select "Disk Management" under Storage.

    Step 2. Locate and right-click on the local disk C drive, and choose "Extend Volume".

    Step 3. Set and add more space to your system C drive and click "Next" to continue.

    Step 4. Click "Finish" to complete the process.

    Note that if that unallocated space on your system disk is not behind the C drive, you can't extend C drive in Disk Management.

    Hope this helps. Let me know if I can help you further!
