Hi durk :)

If the space is "Not allocated", you can easily go in the Windows Disk Management console, right-click on the current used partition (most likely the C: one) and select "Expand partition". From there, give it all the "Non allocated" space you have and it'll be merged with that partition, extending it. If you need screenshots or a walkthrough of the process let me know.
Scratch that I found an excellent tutorial on HowToGeek that should help you :)
