why cant i expand my drive

You can't extend a drive to unallocated space with partitions in between. If you want to use that space, you can:

1. Delete partitions D: and G: (make sure to save any data on it)
2. Make a new partition on the unallocated space

REFRESH BEFORE RESPOND, I EDITED MY POST

Please ensure your signature complies with the following restrictions:
1. There must be a 17 in your signature somewhere.

2. No pictures under any circumstances, ever ever.

Because G: is right next to the unallocated space, instead of having 2 partitions between it.

You can use a tool like minitool parition wizard to move partitions D and G to the right so that the free space is just after C, then you'll be able to. Takes a while.

A partition is a single block that starts at sector X and is Y聽sectors long, thus can't be made of multiple non-contiguous zones.

Did YOU set the drive up this way... or have you bought the drive like this and want to make it into a single, 500GB drive?
I seem to remember that Windows 10 - maybe earlier - changed how drives set themselves up & made this sort of 'segmentation' standard practice, where previous versions of Windows didn't...

I frequently edit any posts you may quote; please check for additional info. added.

Did you test boot it, before you built in into the case?

WHY NOT...?!
