Merge or Resize C Drive with Unallocated Space (make larger)
Just made a clone of a 1 TB HDD to a 1 TB SSD (same size). It was successful. However, both drives have 700 MB unallocated space. I would like to make the C Drive (that is where Documents are) larger and take advantage of all that Unallocated space. Can I just merge C drive with the Unallocated Space? I do see that option when I right-click C drive, merge, and the "merge partitions" pop-up window shows. I see checkboxes next to C (pre-selected as target disk) and the "Unallocated" space. Will that work? Another option I am considering is making a simple partition from the Unallocated space of around 400 GB, leaving approx. 300 unallocated - in case I need it for the future. Do I just create the partition then merge C drive w/that new partition? If I click "re-size" option for C drive, the newly formed partition or Unallocated space is not next to C (or contiguous) to allow me to use that new partition to make C larger. Thx for any help!
