Hi Everyone, I use Macrium Reflect to clone my 256gb hard drive on a new 1tb hard drive. The cloning and physical install went smoothly but now I have almost 700 gigis on unallocated space. My C: drive is showing as if it is still near capacity so I need to figure out how to utilize my new disk space.
After upgrading my Harddrive I am left with this:

My question is how do I add this unallocated portion to my C: drive? Here is what I've tried so far:
1. Using Disk Management I have tried to right click on the unallocated drive to create a new Simple Volume. I get this error message.

If I click Yes then I get this....

Not sure what to do with this?
2. The second thing I tried after searching the internet was to Downloaded MiniTool Partition Manager, right click on the drive and choose "Create" I get this message:

Then I try to make one of the primary drives a "Logical" drive (whatever that means) in an attempt to free up a MBR slot and I cannot convert the "blank" 7gig drive so some reason.

Then I tried to convert the Lenovo Recovery. I am able to change it to a Logical Drive but then still can't create a volume from my 700 gig drive.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
