Windows 7: How to use Unallocated files

How to use Unallocated files

I recently upgraded from a 120gb SSD to a 250gb SSD as my primary system c: drive. I did this by using EaseUS Clone tool. It looks like it partitioned the 250gb as a 120gb and now I have 113gb left as unallocated. My goal here is to use the 250gb SSD as one partition as the primary system c: drive. How do I get rid of the unallocated files to have one partition at 250gb?

thank you for your time!

Best and easiest-to-use partitioning software product: Partition Wizard. Installs and runs under Windows. If you want to do manipulations to the C-partition (i.e. operating Windows partition), you can't complete this while Windows is booted. So you specify the operations using the program, and then PW asks for a restart to complete the operations during boot process... before moving on to the Windows Welcome screen.

Alternatively, you can download/burn the standalone Partition Wizard bootable CD ISO. Now when you boot to this CD you are no longer operating under Windows on the C partition, and thus can perform and complete all operations right then and there. When finished, exit from the standalone environment and boot back to regular Windows.

Either method will accomplish what you want, which is to "extend" the C partition to the right so as to absorb the currently unallocated space on the drive into your C partition. Or, you can think of it as "resize C" picking up the unallocated space to its right. Same result.

Thanks!! That was easy. After reading through the help menu, it seamed like it was best to use the "Move/Resize" option. No rebooting was necessary although I did anyway just to make sure all was fine.

Thanks very much for your help!!
