Just wait your pic only came threw now, that can be merged. You only have one HDD, this is split into 3 partitions. There is no drive letter assigned to this partition. Post if you need more help.

Hi Mafakoos and welcome to the Forum. If you are referring to the 145gb, health, primary partition shown in your disc management screen shot, then you should just be able to assign it a drive letter to make it available. See link below.

No... the partition has NO FILE SYSTEM on it yet. So it must first be formatted with NTFS, before assigning a drive letter to it.

While in Diskmgmt, just select that space (like you show in your screenshot) so that it get cross-hatched (just like it is in the screenshot). Then right-click on it, and select FORMAT from the popup menu and follow the wizard, to format it as NTFS.

Then it will either automatically be given a drive letter by Windows, or you can assign a drive letter manually.
