If the free space is on the wrong side of your C: drive the only way around it is to get a partition program that will allow you to rearrange your partitions.
I don't know the names of any right at this moment but have you had a look in the Tutorials or the free software section, you will probably find something there that can do what you want, either that or wait for the others to appear who will be able to give you the names of programs you can use.

From Disk Management is the free space on right or left side of the C partition?

Or is it to the right of another partition?

There is a good free partition manager program called Partition Wizard.

When you go to the website look for tutorials on how to adjust and move partitions, they will explain how to do it.

Let us know if you have any questions.
