    Recovering 350mb Unalocated Space


    I'm trying with no success to combine a 350mb unallocated space with ,my primary partition.
    But after creating a new simple volume and formatting the "Extend" option for the primary partition is disabled.

    Any way to combine the 350mb and the primary?

    What is the total size of the drive? The partition at 350MB is relatively small/insignificant now-a-days.

    Even if the 350 is insignificant, how would I add it to the primary partition.
    Ys I know. I have plenty of space. I paid for this drive but I unable to use it all.

    For changing the size, move, reallocate your hard disk partition without delete any partition simply, you can use easeus partition master, it has free version for personal use. also see http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/w...a-206037070c76

    It is more complicated than that. If the partition is before the special non-moveable hidden MSR partition, OP may need to delete that as well.

    This can have consequences for future changes, use of encryption etc.

    Yep. We can't offer any advice until we see a screenshot of disk management and see where the unallocated space is. And - actually, because the hidden MSR partition does not show up on disk management, we may need to see a screenshot of the partition layout from a program like MiniTool Partition Wizard.

    Sorry about the delay.
    Here's a screen shot of Disk Management.

    Try extending the Documents partition without formatting 350mb unallocated.

    You can only extend a volume if the Unallocated Space is to the Right of the Partition (Volume) you wish to extend. The 351 MB volume is Left of both partitions. You cannot extend to the left unless you use a 3rd party partitioning tool. Doing this may destroy the C: drives boot file and not worth it.
    As has been stated, 351 MB is just too small and insignificant to use or worry about.
