I cloned a 500 GB SSD to a new 2TB SSD but unfortunately the new 2TB SSD is only showing as a 500GB drive when I right click on it in Explorer. I have tried to run DiskMgmt.msc and extend the partition, but the option to extend it is greyed out. You can see a picture of what the drive partitions are here: View: https://imgur.com/Q87zo4P
You can see the part of the disk is 'unallocated'. I didnt make the partitions that I know of, they were just there...Seems there is a little reserved space on either side of the drive, dunno why, assume that's default? Anyways, if anyone knows how I can extend the partition to make full use of the drive, I would appreciate any adive you have!

Thanks,

GS

It seems the problem is that the partition i want to expand is not contiguous with Unallocated space, so 'extend volume' is greyed out and I cant extend it. Super annoying. Is there any way to fix this without downloading some shady third party software? I cant seem to find an answer.
