off the top of my head...
if you just want free space that is usable to arch and it being a
separate partition is fine with you, then you can:
format the 400GB (i usually use ext4):
create fstab entry for the 400GB partition:
if you require the free space to be re-merged with the existing arch
filesystem, then you would need to delete the 400GB partition and leave
it as free space: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/partitioning
then grow the arch partition:
