    Hard drive space issue after re-install attempt

    Hi, N.w to this forum, recently purchased a second HP Pavillion dv6 which had been converted o Windows 10 Pro. this being on a 120GB hard drive,had 4gig memory, I have now installed a new 500GB hard drive which I have cloned this operating system from the old 120GB hard drive onto it but now find this 500GB now only show up as 92.24GB, I have attempted to format the later 372.61 unallocated space but am unable to do so, has anyone any idea as to how I can achieve this. I have made a `back-up` of the Windows 10 operating system on a 32GB flash drive, I first tried to `copy` the original operating system using a usb caddy but this failed . Thanks Dave
