You can only extend the volume into unallocated space on the same physical drive. There is none. You could conserve some space on C: by moving the pagefile and a few other things but you really need a larger drive.

You could reinstall, but the Msata would need to be Disk 0.

You have installed to the small 32gb SSD chip meant to provide a paging file and faster boot for the larger MSATA drive.

The correct method of reinstall is explained here: Install Windows on MSATA (SSD) Drive
Install Windows on System with MSATA and ISRT

However we have helped users install Win7 to the 32gb SSD for the speed benefits alone, since the RAIDed MSATA as originally designed does not speed up things that much compared to the lightning speed of SSD. Moving the data to the HD helps facilitate this. With adequate RAM you can also reduce the paging file although I would not offload it to HD as it will slow performance. You can save space the size of your RAM by turning off Hibernation, which is regrettable since it works so well in Win7.
Virtual Memory Paging File - Change - Vista Forums
Hibernate - Enable or Disable

If you decide to try the current configuration there is one change I would make: Move the System boot files to the C using EasyBCD Bootmgr - Move to C:\ with EasyBCD - Windows 7 Forums then mark Inactive and delete the System Reserved partition on the HDD. Partition - Mark as Inactive

Let us know how it goes.

Finally Windows 7 x64 on my Dell Inspiron 15R 7520 SE

Used lots of Images Apologies
Here is how i did it?

Create Bootable USB Drive With Rufus Follow UEFI Bootable USB Flash Drive - Create in Windows

Reset BIOS to Default


F12 change Peripheral Device setting (OPROM setting) -> UEFI with Legacy OPROM: Secure Boot :OFF







F12 -> Enter Setup or F2 -> Advance Tab -> Select Intel Smart Respone Technology from SATA Operation


Clean Disk and SSD Install Windows on MSATA (SSD) Drive

Install Windows on System with MSATA and ISRT

Boot Via UEFI BOOT: EFI USB/UEFI DVD Windows 7 Clean Install Windows 7




Hibernation and Start Up faster on Windows 8


Uncertain Whether IRST is Working or not see above screenshot


Thanks everyone

The install looks correct for MSATA/IRST and its control panel says its working correctly. But I'm not sure why the paging file isn't on the 32gb. Maybe your model requires moving it there. Virtual Memory Paging File - Change

Read your model on the PC's Support Downloads webpage to see if there are any extra steps.

18.6 GB for Cache 11.21 for Hibernation

Hibernation is really slow and startup also

Encounter this
Code:
Your computer can't come out of hibernation.
Status: 0XC000009A
Fix with SFC /SCANNOW


System Start-up and Hibernation Slow (comparing with other System with cache/hibernation SSD)
