Free Space is left over when you delete a Logical partition. To delete it rightclick in Disk Mgmt to Delete Volume. You'll then have Unallocated Space you can extend C into: Partition or Volume - Extend.

Did you delete your Factory Recovery partition which often works in tandem with the OEM partition? If this is a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 you don't need the OEM partition either and can delete and recover it's space into C using Partition Wizard Move/Resize Partition - Video Help.

If you've not yet gotten around to getting the superior Clean Reinstall then you can follow these steps to Clean Up Factory Bloatware

Hello efsksk,

It looks like you will need to delete the 3rd 63.88 GB "Free space" partition to make it "unallocated space", then you well be able to extend C into the "unallocated space" to have it all on C.

Hope this helps,
