    "Extend Volume" option on C greyed out. Free space available but how?

    I deleted a partition I had added previously for a Linux OS. After deleting it turned green as in "Free Space" I want that available space given back to C. I have included a screen shot of where I am. I don't know what to do next. The "Extend Volume" Option in C is not activated.

    System info included below

    Thank you.

    I`m fairly certain the entire space has to be deleted down to unallocated space, then you can extend C

    I recommend making and using a Partition Wizard Boot CD to do all your partition management.

    I can't figure out why you can't extend your system partition with disk management. "extend volume" greyed out mostly because that the unallocated space is not very behind system partition; but yours are.
    Anyhow, glad to hear that you have solved your problem!
