    My Windows 7 Pro has a tiny sliver of "unallocated space," which is to be left alone. Does Windows 8 also do that? I'd like to learn more about this.

    The disk space which isn't partitioned is unallocated space. It is nothing to do with Windows system, so Windows 8 may exist the unallocated space. We can add the unallocated space to other partitions, and disk management, easeus partitions master can do that. But we have to delete one partition with disk management, then create the new partition with the unallocated space. With Partition Master, we can directly resize unallocated space or partitions.

    I had about 17 GBs unallocated space on mine & merged it with my C drive making it bigger using the ---

    It was easy to do with help from Brink.

    Hi,

    If I understand you correctly,

    Unless you or a very specific program did that, I can see no reason you should have that on your C: (windows) partition.. here is mine.. and all my previous windows have always only had the usual "hidden" partitions. Never a Unallocated space..
