Two questions: Ran out of disk space for backup; New SSD questions for L450!

1. Ran out of this space in my Q:Lenvovo - backup assigned partition.  14GB.  (My C: drive has 80GB free!) 

How can I fix this?  Is there a way to expand the partition without deleting it first?  Does Lenvovo or Microsoft or SSD manufacturer have a tool to do this where you just enter the amount you want to expand a partition to and it will adjust the other partition accordingly?  If not; I cannot delete the Q:Lenovo drive using file explorer or disk cleanup utility.  How do I remove at the original backup?  When I go to disk cleanup it shows blank the files; so it is a hidden file or subdirectory.  I even try signing on as System Administratin but forgot the password I created, it been so long ago and never use it.  LOL!   If I cannot do any of this:  There is an option to do a Windows 10 refresh but can you redirect it to a new SSD from the existing SSD?

 

2. Looking to get a new SSD but in NVMe configuration.

 

a. Does my L450 support NVMe boot up? What type of NVMe does my Thinkpad support?  I thinking of getting the Samsung 860 Evo.

b. Is connecting the new NVMe and running transfer SSD software the Windows 10 will recognize the drives and do the transfer?   

 

Serial Number: ******

Part Number: 20D5503800

 

Thanks for any help you can give in this matter!

As to 2 a and b:  your laptop does not support NVMe drives.  The main bay and the 2242 m.2 slot are SATA.
