    No, its unable to extend partition, and i have a lack of space. Those unallocated 800 GB would do just great.

    I'll try with Easeus

    If it is possible, just drag the partition slider all the way to the left till 0 (zero) on the left (unallocated) and apply changes. I believe it might take sometime though it's empty it says "moving data" (I don't quite understand some of windows behavior)

    When you done restarting it, you can do another action to shrink or resize the drive to create new partition from it. (on the right side of physical map indicated on easeus.

    The temporary
    Did you create it or it just gets there? Can you resize that "temporary" or even delete it?
    Of course is not possible to resize over other drive teritory
    Sreenshot will explain I think.
