Re Installed Windows 10 Pro to Alienware 15 R2 from disk partition, and

I used the option to keep my personal files.   Seems everything is working.   However, this laptop comes with a 1 TB Spinning Hard Drive and and 512 GB NvMe which I thought were to run as a raid.  Some weeks after install I look at Disk Management and see 476.81 GB which is unallocated.   I am guessing I missed some option in the reinstall.  Any easy way to fix?

Windows needs to be reinstalled (or cloned) to the NVMe drive.

No, you don't want to "RAID" the NVMe and hard drive - this will simply cache the hard drive at best - the system performance will be dragged down by the spinning drive.  

Load Windows onto the NVMe drive -- and leave the hard drive for storage or for running large applications.
