So i followed a video on YouTube to copy my computer (W 11), all files, folders & pictures to it ! How do i make sure it copied them to the external hard drive ? Shouldn't i be able to see everything copied by opening the "D" drive as shown here ?? First time using an external back up !!

A straight copy of everything in the C: drive/boot drive/system drive can't get everything, there's always Hidden files and System files that simply can't be copied. A Cloning program should get those files but I've been using a USB 3 Eaxer Drive Dock that holds 2 SATA drives, either HDD or SSD or one of each, either size. The dock has a cloning feature that runs outside of the Operating System, actually can't have the USB cable connected to any computer and does a Byte for Byte copy to a clean/empty drive. Only restriction is the Destination drive needs to be same capacity/size as the Source or larger.

Outside of the first item Flash the others appear very similar to other external drives installing what the maker includes for features. That Flash folder may hold your pictures or other data but can't tell. The right-click Properties of that folder should give a size indicating files in it and double-clicking it should open to view what is in it.

The unallocated space exists on drive F:, it can't be moved to drive C:. It can, however, be added to the F: partition, but first it needs to be moved to the right of F: You'll need a third party partition app to do the move. Others will chime in with a better explanation and more details.
