    So i've just bought a Seagate 3TB internal hdd (having an 4TB Boot drive already).
    But in the Disk management it shows 128GB unallocated memory and its greyed out!

    When the partition was created, it likely wasn't told to use all the space available on the drive.

    You don't have to delete anything , you can still extend the volume with the unallocated space.

    By grayed out , do you mean like it's not giving you any options when you right-click ?

    A screenshot of Disk Manager would be helpful.
