Why You Need to Move Unallocated Space

There are many partitions on a disk, like C, D, E drives. There are 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 not right behind the partition, you are unable to extend a partition with the help of Disk Management.
