Unallocated Space?

Hey everyone,

I was just in disk management and realized i have 11GB of unallocated space, is there a way i could allocate or extend it on to my (C:) Drive? becuase i tried allocating it to a drive letter and C: Drive was unavailable, please reply if you know a solution.

Thanks in advanced.
