I want to get rid of unallocated space on my HDD so I can just have one partition with the total of 4TB but I cant get rid of the unallocated space. Anyone knows how to get rid of that and just use 1 partition? thanks!

I would advise against ever using a single partition that large/  With such size...by malware software or by chkdsk...is going to take forever...during which time you won't be able to boot into the system and use it (if you are running a chkdsk /r on the boot partition.

 

If you have multiple partitions...the scan will only prevent access to that one partition, not the whole drive.

 

You can use any disk-management software to change partition sizes.  Among others, I use EaseUS Partition Master.
