    Partition 3 is Windows Recovery Environment WinRE, when your PC does not boot correctly, that is the blue screen that asks if you want to use a restore point, or other options.
    If you are an average user, please keep WinRE, and simply shrink partition 4, then move partition 4 to end of disk, then move partition 3 to the right, then expand partition 2.
    If you are an advanced user, you do not need partition 3 WinRE. In the future, If your PC does not boot, you can use the WinRE included on Windows 10/11 USB. You could delete partition 3, then shrink partition 4.
    Partition Assistant is great software with many tools, but I do not recommend using it to shrink partitions, because Disk Management diskmgmt.msc can do it faster.
    Always make a full disk backup before doing deep operations like these on your disk. Backup onto an external disk, then turn PC off and unplug that disk during your work.
    Please post a screenshot.
    Backupper WinPE USB:
    Add custom drivers, such as NVMe, if necessary. Does not work with some monitors.

    Partition Assistant WinPE USB:
    Add custom drivers, such as NVMe, if necessary.

    Aomei WinPE 2.0 Builder USB:
    Partition Assistant, Backupper, Recuva, 7zip, OSF Mount, CPU-Z, Bootice, diskmgmt.msc. Does not support any additional drivers, such as some internal NVMe disks.

  • @Nathan143, Maybe you can use AOMEI Partition Assistant to allocated free space from E: drive to C: drive: https://www.diskpart.com/help/allocate-free-space.html
