In Disk Managment, where is that 70 gb partition located? to the right or to the left of the C: partition?

the left side contains the C: and the right 163GB is unallocated.

Just right-click on the 70GB partition and go to Extend Volume. You should be able to incorporate all of the unallocated space into the 70GB partition.

Disk manager is not allowing me to expand the C: drive. It seems as though it will only allow me to add another partition to the unallocated portion of the drive.

Can you elaborate more maybe I am just not understanding.

You need to delete the partition that is to the right of the C:
Then it will allow you to extend the C: partition to include the empty space.

ie. once you right-click on the partition to the righ of c: select "delete"
then right-click on that new empty space and click "extend this space"

Make sure that you don't have anything that you want on the larger partition before you delete it.

It won't let you because the disk is in use by the system. Download and install this partitioning tool and see if you can resize the partition. It will probably tell you that it will have to reboot because the disk is in use. Simple to use.

There is no partition to delete if the drive is saying unallocated space.
