  1. Unallocated space on C drive


    I have an old laptop from 2010 (Acer Aspire 5740G-6395) that I had put to the side last year because my employer bought me a new laptop and the Acer was taking 10-15 minutes to boot. When I became aware of the low price of SSDs, for a tinkering project I picked up a 120gig SSD for $19 at Micro Center and figured I'd have a go. All is going well - I won't say the laptop feels brand new but it is now quite functional. (It went so well that I did the same thing with a 2009 Acer netbook and even that one is at least usable at least for me to learn Linux on, but I digress).

    My question is that looking in Disk Management there is 442 MB of unallocated space. I have no idea how it got there but given the small size of the SSD would love to reclaim it if I can. But I don't want to blow everything up if that can be avoided. Is there any way short of reinstalling windows that I can accomplish it, or should I just leave it alone?

    (Windows 10, ver 2004 btw - I decided against cloning the old HD and starting with a fresh install)

    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 (CUnallocated space on C drive :) 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.
     
  4. Unallocated space on C drive

    adding unallocated disk space to drive C:

    How can I add the unallocated disk space to drive C:\ when the unallocated space is not adjacent to the C:\

    partitions are on the drive: such as Drives: E, F, G, H

    drive F:\ has been shrunk and I would like to add the unallocated space to the C:\

    however, windows will not let me expand the C: drive or move the unallocated space to Drive C:\

    I am trying to do this because Windows has run out of space on Drive C:\ and I am now having a hard time printing, saving, etc.
