Default Deleting a persistant partition on a SSD.

I can't get rid of the right-most partition
("unallocated") on this SSD (Disk2) which is
taking up a lot of space.
I've tried reformatting just this partition and
forming a new simple disk with it, but I can't
delete it. I want to expand the left-side
partition to include it.

You were almost there when right side was "unallocated". You simply had
to have the good partition expanded to use the unallocated space. It
can't expand into allocated space.

You might try Minitool Partition Manager or any other one freely
available on the net. Worked for me on a stubborn one a while back.

I've used minitool a lot of time. It's served me well.

You've got the middle partition in the way. You need to move that to
the right and then you can expand the C partition into the free space.
The space must be unallocated, as it is. Try the minipartition tool
that has been suggested. I would also increase the size of the middle
partition to 1gig before moving it. It is the boot partition and I've
had problems with Win10 updates if it's too small.
