    How can I use Unallocated space and all not needed partitions including J? This is where I have my C drive and I like to make it as big as possible.

    Thanks

    We can't see what any of the partition are for, without that information we cannot advise you.

    Please read this tutorial, adjust column widths as described and post a new screenshot.

    Install Minitool Partition Wizard Free, delete all partitions to right of c drive except the 450 MB Recovery Partition.

    Then using minitool, move Recovery partition to far right.

    Then uou can expand C drive to fill space.

    Including J: ? That seems to be the right size for a factory reset partition. Still the OP may never need to do a factory reset, but until we know for sure what the partition are it's a bit of a risk just deleting them.

    Always post a full screenshot of Windows Disk Management showing all the disks. Truncated screenshot like the one you posted doesn't help. It will also help if you remove all external drives/docks/hubs so that Windows Disk Management shows only the internal drives.

    You should also explain what is Disk 3 which also seems to have EFI System Partition and other OEM partitions.

    Help others to help you better by furnishing all details and take out any guess work.

    I cloned disk 3 which was Disk 0 into Disk 0 which was Disk 3. That's why they match. Here is the full screenshot:

    OK, thanks for the full screenshot. That should give a clear picture. Now wait for other experts like Bree and /or others to crack on it and help you. ( I am not one on OEM machines and how they arrange their partitions and what those contain.)

    I'm afraid I'll have to sit on the side-lines for this one, I'm more familiar with mbr layouts than uefi. Perhaps @NavyLCDR or others?
