I would Like to Expand my C drive if this is possible - even if it means purchasing a partitioning software tool - otherwise I will merge with the G drive but can I do this in windows 8.1 Computer Management. I would be very appreciative of your advice.

With windows you can only expand partitions to the right. So unless you wanted a huge Recovery partition or create a new partition in the unallocated space (and yet another drive letter) then your best bet is partition software which can do much more then windows can.
Aomei is a good one!

I agree with creating a full backup before messing with your partitions.
