If the space is to the right of your OS use the built in disk management if not then use a 3rd party app like parigon disk suite, and grow the OS partition

Free space means a Logical extended partition is still in the mix. It needs to be deleted.

If you post back a screenshot showing your full Disk Management drive map, we can help you with the steps. Use Snipping Tool in Start menu.

Sometimes it takes forming another Logical partition there using free Partition Wizard bootable CD, then converting it to Primary before deleting it so it become Unallocated space. Other times it will just delete.
