Why You Need to Move Unallocated Space

There are many partitions on a disk, like C, D, E drives. There is also some unallocated space on the disk shown as "*" and marked as unallocated. The unallocated space is the space that hasn't been put into use. You cannot use it until you use the unallocated space to create a new partition or add the space to other drives.

When the unallocated space is right behind the partition, right-click on the c drive and choose Extend Volume to enlarge the c drive space. When the unallocated space is not right behind the partition, you are unable to extend a partition with the help of Disk Management.

unallocated space is not right behind the drive

The free built-in utility just allows you to resize Windows partitions with unallocated space just behind the partition you want to expand. Otherwise, you might be caught in the "extend volume greyed out" error. Many users are suffering from this issue when they are trying to extend C drive.


Under the guidance of this approach, you can get ahold of how to allocate unallocated space to C or other drives. If your C drive is jammed with junk files, there is also a guide about how to clean the c drive. With this software, moving the unallocated space isn't a complicated thing. If you want to extend the G drive partition with the unallocated space, use the F partition to move the unallocated space to the right side so that you can use EaseUS Partition Master to extend it.

  • It won't hot image your drives or align them, but since it's coupled with a partition manager, it allows you do perform many tasks at once, instead of just cloning drives. You can move partitions around, resize them, defragment, and more, along with the other tools you'd expect from a cloning tool.
