Hello. I was wondering if someone could help me with how to extend the primary C partition for Windows 10. We had a laptop with a hard drive that was replaced by the retailer with a larger hard drive. When they replaced it, they didn't extend the C drive into the unallocated space they just copied the partitions over as they were on the original drive.

I would like to extend the C partition but not lose the recovery partition which is next to it. The partition layout in disk manager is as follows:

| 260MB EFI Partition | 237GB Windows C: boot                | 704MB Windows RE Tools         | 238.47GB Unallocated space    |

I would like to join the unallocated space with the Windows C partition. and still have the recovery partition. Can I do that?

Thank you.
