I have a 120GB solid state drive that has my windows 10 operating system on it and when i got into the disk managment window I noticed that it split the drive into 2 parts. one part that has windows and another part that is unallocated. I want to combine these two parts but dont know how to. I also have a HDD that is 1 TB but I am having no problems with that one.

Not sure what's happening with all those 'Recovery' partitions but to be on the safe side I would right click the 'Unallocated' area and make a partition there as shown here from Step 2 onward :- http://www.dummies.com/computers/pcs/how-to-use-unallocated-drive-space-in-windows/
When I tried to make a new volume it said that there wasn't enough space to complete the task, I tried to make the size smaller like the instructions said and it still said that there wasn't enough room

I just noticed the SSD is set up as a 'Dynamic Disk'. How was Windows 10 installed on it ?
