    Hello,

    Did you try that :

    # Variable specifying the drive you want to extend  
    $drive_letter = "C"  
      
    # Script to get the partition sizes and then resize the volume  
    $size = (Get-PartitionSupportedSize -DriveLetter $drive_letter)  
    Resize-Partition -DriveLetter $drive_letter -Size $size.SizeMax  
    

    You can find more information in this article :
