    Need To Recover Unallocated Diskspace Win 10


    I have 443gig of unallocated space. The disk management thing says so. I want to put it on my C:\ drive. I am not sure why or how I did this. Whenever I set this diskspace aside was a long time ago, I guess I did it?. How do I "regain/recapture" this disk space. Here is the pic: Thank you in advance!

    OS Is Win 10 :)

    Right click on your C: drive "square" in Disk management, click Extend Volume. You should be able to just click Next through the next screens.

    If Disk Management won't let you do it because it is your system OS partition, then install MiniTool Partition Wizard:
    Best Free Partition Manager for Windows | MiniTool Partition Free

    It will let you extend the system OS partition.

    Use MiniTool Partition Wizard Free, that's the easiest way:

    Note that when you click on the Download button, a new webpage in a new tab might open for Power Data Recovery. Just close that new tab, and you'll go back to the previous tab and the "Save As" dialog box will be at the bottom.

    NavyLCDR, I appreciate your response, but I was hoping for something simpler, like how to use the Windows functionality that's already there, just a little unclear. I was hoping I wouldn't have to download anything. Also, I don't even know what a partition is. I just want to put that space in question to use if it's not being used now. Don't even necessarily know what unallocated (in this context) means. Didn't the OP use that screen to solve the problem? Thanks.

    From the screenshot you posted, we can guess you want to include that 853 mb ( the black rectangle) into your "C" .

    If so, then all you needed to was click Next in your screenshot.

    You divide a disk up into partitions. You have two in your screenshot. The first 100mb labelled "system", the second is your Windows partition "C".

    The space in the black rectangle is not in a partition and is called unallocated space, because you haven't allocated it to a partition.

    Thanks, SIW2. I didn't say what I wanted to do because I thought it was clear from the content of the thread what I was trying to accomplish. Also, "I" didn't (knowingly) do anything as far as partitions are concerned. I just happened to see the unallocated space when I was on that screen dealing with something else. At any rate, I clicked on Next as you said, and with just 1 or 2 more clicks, I was done. Mission accomplished. Thanks again.
