Extending system volume to unallocated space

Hi experts

I have about 700 GBs of unallocated space. I would like to extend the C:\ system partition to include it. This should be quite easy. I just have a silly question before I do this.

Currently, the extra partition is unallocated, which would mean to me that it is not formatted. Can I simply select to extend the C partition or do I have to make the unallocated space into a New Simple Volume first?

Thanks.

HI

If i'm not mistaken , you can only extend a volume with unallocated space. So no need to format it.

You should be able to use Extend Volume Option.
