Thank you
Right click "My Computer" and Select "Manage"

In the left pane under "Storage" select "Disk Management"

Now u will get the system whole partition detail in a pane below.

Blue represents the Primary Partition i.e OS drive

The Unallocated space in ur hard disk will be shown black color

Right click the unallocated space and select " New Simple Volume" option

Now follow the steps and allocate the amount of space that u want.
