    Virtual ram =/= real ram, no matter how hard you try, it will still be slow using Vram, even using SSDs in raid formats


    Anywhom, if you want you can just right click on any of the drives and allocate space to it by hitting expand.

    So pretty much you have a C drive that is 143.9GB.
    You need to go into control panel/administrative tools/computer management/Storage/disk management and assign a drive letter to the unallocated space.
