Less than half of hard drive usable

I use an old 160 gig hard drive to boot off of and I am only able to use 69.7 gigs of it's storage. Is there a reason for this or a way to get around the limit?

    OK...you should be able to Extend that C partition into that 69.51GB Unallocated space to the right.
    Right click on the C partition. Does it give you that option to Extend?

    Yes :D (sorry about all the hard drive questions recently, I don't know how to troubleshoot them)
