    How to use unallocated space in windows 10


    Hi,

    I have two disk drives in my laptop, drive C and D.

    Also, I have an unallocated space and wanting to allocate it to the drive C.

    Can I transfer an unallocated space to the drive C without third party softwares?


    If yes, how do I do this?


    Regards

    I recommend MiniTool Partition Wizard:
    Best Free Partition Manager for Windows | MiniTool Partition Free

    You are going to have to move both the 499MB and DATA (D:) partitions to the right to the end of the disk. That will put the unallocated space next to (to the right) of C: drive and you can then extend C: drive into the empty space.

    There is a little bit of a learning curve using MiniTool Partition Wizard. But it is a very intuitive graphics based user interface.
    On the menu on the left side of the screen you will see a "Move Partition" selection. Clicking this will open a window showing your disk structure and you will literally click and drag the partitions around to where you want them.

    Also in the learning phase, based on the Disk Management image you have only 1 physical drive but it has partitions on it which is what you are working with. Two of the partitions have drive letters. Every drive needs at least 1 partition to be usable.

    As others have said, MiniTool Partition Wizard can do that for you. Windows has no built in tools to move partitions. It can however extend your D: partition to use that unallocated space, if you'd prefer not to use third-party tools.
