I got 3 hard drives
1 - 1TB HDD
2 - 120GB SSD
3 - 240GB SSD
I wanted to transfer my windows 10 from my 120GB SSD to the 240GB SSD
Some one transferd it to me but he did it wrong
The hard drives spilted to small hard drives
Then some one helped me to orginize it
But it showing that my 240GB SSD got only 110GB
How can i get my original size and originze everything

Try cloning the windows disc to whichever disc you want. Macrium and Aomei have free apps that will do it. Or a safer way to do it is to make a system image of your C drive with either of those apps and then do a restore to the drive you want, that way if anything goes wrong with the process your data is safe.

You that is an option. When you get to the pat on where you want to install Windows click on each of the partitions and delete then so it will utilize the entire drive.

The other thing you can do is go under Disk Manager and combine the unused partition on the 240 SSD and combine it with the C:\ that carries windows. @phillpower2

Honestly the reinstall would be best this would give you a clean install and you would not have any issues that may be coming form the previous install.

You might also want to have just that drive in the system for the reinstall should you decide to go that route.

Back up any files (Documents, pictures, etc...) that you do not wish to loose.

I concur, a clean install of Windows 10 and the required drivers on the 240GB SSD would be the way to go.

There is nothing to uninstall. Will be just an install.
but the problem is that i don't have a usb and dvd
If you do not have any of this then how were you planning on installing Windows?
i got only the windows disk
If you do not have any USB or DVD then explain what and how you are planning on using the Windows Disk.

You do or do not have a DVD player in that system?

You do or do not have the Windows Disk?

Have you tried doing a search yourself. No I do not know of any lets see if @Bruce @phillpower2 have any suggestion.

16 GiB should be enough.
I got Windows Disk
I orderd a pc from pc shop a year ago the windows was installed alredy and i got windows disk with it

if you are going to reload Windows 10, you could use the CD you have already(except you don't have a drive unit), but why not get the latest build from Microsoft.

download the Media Creation Tool from here; https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/software-download/windows10
you'll need a 8GB USB stick to fit it on.
the media tool will download the latest and burn it to the USB for you.
then use that USB as described by Rustys in post #4.

during the reload when it asks for your Product Key, click "I don't have one" and continue, it'll auto activate when you first go online.

and as already stated, don't forget to backup (docs, pics, vid, music, favs, bookmarks, emails, desktop, downloads)

I got windows 10 recovery disk but I don't have a DVD to put it in and reinstall windows 10, how much USB GB I need to buy 8GB or 16GB because you are saying to buy 8GB but Rusty's says to buy 16GB maybe I should buy 16GB just to make sure that I got enough space for the media tool? And when I will run the media tool it will delated my windows and install new one?

An 8GB flash drive will be more than enough to install Windows, but a larger drive may be useful for other stuff in the future??

Another alternative to downloading Windows is to get a copy with this tool HERE where you can directly and legally download the April 2018 version (1803) iso instead of going to Microsofts page and only having a choice of the somewhat problematical (1809) and being forced to use the media creation tool. FWIW
