Can I remove or delete unallocated space on my drive? What should I do to delete unallocated space? All these questions can be figured out in this article. First, unallocated space shows how much space is available, and it isn't a partition, so you can't remove it directly.

Lucky for you, I will offer two efficient methods provided by EaseUS Partition Master Free to help you remove the unallocated space. As a professional disk management tool, EaseUS Partition Master provides accessible solutions and simple operations to fix partition problems.

Method 1. Extend Unallocated Space into Current Partition

You can remove the unallocated space on your drive by extending it into your existing partition. Following the detailed instructions below:

Step 1. Open "Partition Manager" of EaseUS Partition Master, choose the target partition, and click "Resize/Move."

Step 2. Pull the right or left edge of the partition panel to add the unallocated space into your existing partition and click "OK" to continue.

Step 3. Drag the dots of the target partition into the unallocated space you want to remove and click "OK." Then tap the "Execute 1 Task" button and click "Apply" to keep the changes.

Method 2. Create Partition Using the Unallocated Space

If you don't want to merge the unallocated space into the existing partition, you can try to remove it by creating a new partition. Here is how to do so:

Step 1. Launch EaseUS Partition Master, right-click the unallocated space, and select "Create."

Step 2. Adjust the partition drive letter, partition label, file system, and other settings in the advanced settings and click "OK" to continue.

Step 3. Click the "Execute 1 Task" button and "Apply" to create a new partition.

As you can see, all solutions above can be completed within three easy steps. I hope this page can be helpful for you to remove or delete the unallocated space.
