If i right click on C (the one i want to extend), i can shrink it, but "extend" is grayed out.

I have no unrecognized space on that HDD, C and E are both active and total the whole HDD.

Is that what you're asking me for ?

If you have anything in E, it will take a while to complete, but it will get done.
Yeah I figured it was totally empty space beyond C. Didn't know you had made a partition, but if E partition is empty, you might as well just delete it and then you could use extend. It'll take like a minute tops.
