    How to move the unallocated memory to C;

    Someone told me they need to be right next to eachother (c; and unallocated memory) but how do I do that and expand it.

    I would install Mini Tool Partition Wizard, move the 450GB partition to the right (so you have the unallocated space contiguous with partition 3 (C: drive) then extend partition 3 (C: drive) to include the unallocated space. You might want to review what's in the 21.5 GB recovery partition which is very large and consider if you need it. Partition 1 seems large for a recovery partition but that one is best left alone.

    Be sure to have a system image backup before you do this for which you can use Macrium Reflect.

    When you have finished, use the reagentc /info command from an admin command prompt to check the correct recovery partition is set.

    All good advice by Steve C , I use both those Programs too.

    one small typo in the command prompt command above there should be no space between the / and info

    ie : it should be

    use the reagentc /info command from an admin command prompt

    Or, you could assign it "drive D," drive letter D to this partition for all your data folders and files. That way, if you ever have to restore your OS partition, your data material remains untouched.

    I'm not sure why there are 3 Recovery Partitions plus a system Partition , it's a little unusual but be careful removing the 21.5GB partition as my guess is, if it is a Store bought Computer/laptop, that it is the OS Image Drive you NEED if you ever want to restore the computer to "Factory Defaults" . ( though there are other ways to do that too.)

    The 750GB+ unallocated partition should just be made into D:\ that's always a good idea as Roland mentioned and the rest left alone unless you really know what you are doing. Just right click it in Disk Management and Create a Volume , format it NTFS ,and assign it Letter D.
