I purchased a laptop with 256 GB SSD and 1 TB Hard Drive. The free space in C: is nearly full after I installed a couple of heavy programs. Now traditionally I would extend the system partition C: in Disk Management under Device Management. But I can not do it currenty. Is it because the two are separate physical Hard drives?

What Can I do now to have more space in C:

I'm afraid you can't.
Either partition the 1TB drive and use solely for programs or install programs on the 1TB drive directly without any partitioning.

Or upgrade to a 512GB drive, the Crucial 512s have gotten pretty darn reasonable. I upgraded a friend's PC not too long ago, and the cost between the 256-512 was negligible, so we went with the 512, even though they had only used about half of their 256 platter-drive.

As long as you upgrade single-components, at a t time, Windows Protection won't throw an error, you just image it over and restart with the new drive.
