Hello Sweetseven, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could extend the C: partition into all of the unallocated space to have the unallocated space added back to the C: partition.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hello sweetseven, welcome to Seven Forums!


Do not accept a Dynamic disk at all, that may make the PC totally unbootable.


Note   Note

Before we make any specific recommendations will you please post a snip/screen-shot of the entire Windows disk management drive map with a full description as to which drive/partition is which, so we can see what you have going on as there may be a fairly simple way to resolve the situation.

In the Windows start menu right click computer and click manage, in the left pane of the "Computer Management" window that opens click disk management and post a maximized snip of that.

Please post back a screenshot of your maximized Disk Management drive map with listings, using the Snipping Tool in Start Menu.

Did you use Disk Management to do these operations?

Have a look at the "extend" tutorial linked above by Brink to extend C: back into the unallocated space; have a look at this Method Two in this tutorial linked below for some ideas on how to get more partitions/drives for storage safely..

Slow down, do not do anything except to extend C: back into the unallocated space you cannot have more than a total of 4 partitions per Hard Disk Drive, you will destroy Windows.
