I tried that and I keep getting an error
The parameters specified for a DiskPart command were incorrect.

Volume 2 has 39 GB free
Volume 3 has 114GB Drive letter G, I want it all to be under G.

may be I am typing the commands wrong, what should I replace the n with.
At the DISKPART prompt, type:
list volume

Make note of the number of the basic volume you want to extend.

At the DISKPART prompt, type:
select volume n

Selects the basic volume, n, you want to extend into contiguous, empty space on the same disk.

At the DISKPART prompt, type:
extend [size=n]

If you can supply me with the correct imputs i will try those.

Use the computer management tool in your control pannel.

Contrl Pannel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management

On the left side of the tree view, Go under Disk Management.

Becareful when yo'ure in here, coz you see all your HDD's partition.

Find the hdd that you want to relocate your disk size. Delete ALL partitions in this disk (since you want only 1 drive) All primary, logical partitions should be deleted until the whole disk looks like 1 rectangular box. Then right click and create a partition. by default it should put in all the size. If not just make sure it's everything.

After that format and then you're done
