removing unallocated partiton on boot drive

I used a windows image in transfer my computer to a new ssd drive. The image copied even the hd size. The ssd is a 256 and my old hd was a 160. I now have 150gb boot section, a 100mb reserve and a 90gb unallocated space. what can I do to remove the partition and combine the space so I have access to the full drive? I searched and couldnt find anything.

TIA

Remove what partition?

The unallocated space is not a partition. It's unallocated space.

You can add the unallocated space to C via Windows Disk Management IF AND ONLY IF the unallocated space is immediately to the right of C, contiguous with it, as displayed in Windows Disk Management.

If the unallocated space is anywhere else, you will have to use a tool such as Partition Wizard bootable disc.

How can I get rid of the unallocated space adjacent to the healthy partition? Windows disk management you say, thats through the control panel?

By using Windows Disk Management.

Type Disk Management into the start button search box.

Highlight C and right click it.

You should see a menu that will let you add that unallocated space to C.

If the unallocated space was to the left of C, you would have to use Partition Wizard.
