I recently ran Bootcamp on my MacBook Air to use Windows 10.
This has quickly maxed out my available storage within the C Drive. I have a external Hard Drive plugged in with a large amount of unallocated storage. How can I partition between the two more evenly?
I assumed i'd be able to Extend Volume under Computer Management, although this is greyed out. Shrink volume is also greyed out on the D Drive.
Let me know if there is a better forum for this!

Two images added below for reference.

Bootcamp runs from a partition on your Macintosh Hard Drive. Your Mac HDD is only 113 GB usable space total, 80 GB's is used for your MAC OS. You cannot extend a drives capacity into another HDD, you can only extend it on the same HDD. You selected the partition size you wanted Bootcamp to use when you set it up so you can't shrink this partition either. I would boot into Mac, and delete this partition.
Here are instructions on how to install Bootcamp file to an External HDD. Good luck: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/5431182
