The small partition is allocated by windows.
If you are not familiar with the disk manager,
keep far away from it.
100M is useless for storing anything.

Hello malkari, welcome to Seven Forums!


If you're referring to the one on the far right, there in Windows disk management right click the partition and click "Change Drive ..." then "Add Letter" that will/should give you access to it.


Do not give the one on the far left a letter.

Yes that one, leave the one on the left alone or you will be sorry.

What are you needing to do make C: larger?


If you are sure there is nothing on the partition to the right you need then just delete it then right click C: and click "Extend Volume" that should do it for you.
