How can I extend C drive on Surface Pro?

I bought a new Surface Pro 3 half a years ago and installed many programs on it. Now I find the device is getting slower and slower because my C drive is full. I decided to copy the recovery partition to my USB flash drive, and then delete the recovery partition from my Surface Pro without hesitation after creating a USB recovery partition to regain some free disk space. So I can easily extend C drive on Surface Pro by adding the free space to it. But finally, when I start to do it, I find that it is workable for any other normal windows computer except for Surface Pro. Anyone has some suggestions? Please help!

It eventually helped me remove recovery partition on Surface Pro and extend system partition successfully with ease.
