However, I have no idea how to merge unallocated space into C drive. I am using Windows 10. Any suggestions will be appreciated!

How to Add Unallocated Space to C Drive with Disk Management

In any case, the unallocated space is not on the right behind the C drive. You can not add it to the hard drive because the Extend Volume is greyed out. If your unallocated space is adjacent to C drive, you can get Disk Management to move unallocated space in Windows 10.

First, you need to open Disk Management by pressing Windows + X and enter the interface. Then Disk Management has appeared, right-click the C drive, and choose the Extend Volume to extend the C drive with the unallocated space.
