    Extend C: with non adjacent partition

    Ok, so Iv ran out of space on my samsung SSD so I bought a new crucial SSD. I have cloned the original SSD and its working but I cant get the extra space merged with my C Drive.
    C Drive is 92gb and then there is 3 partitions in between the extra 120gb that I want to add.
    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Hello icemantaz, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    You might see if you may be able to use the free MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition to extend C: into the 120GB of unallocated space on the same SSD.

    As I see it - You have a 92GB partition and a 23GB partition - all the other partitions are MB partitions

    I see "G" where are the C, D, E, F drives?? Since this is listed as disk 2, there are also two other disks missing -Disk 0 and Disk 1

    Edit: I see the faded out 120GB now..

    What you have in those partitions are the

    4(windows 8.1 recovery tools) created after win 8.1 update
    5(oem recovery image)
    6(oem tools )

    at command prompt(admin)
    Type> diskpart
    type> select disk 2
    type> list partition
    take a snapshot

    type> list volume
    take a snapshot

    Now find the 23GB volume #
    type> select volume #
    type> assign letter=r

    Browse thru R and find Install.wim or Install.swm(s) - those are your Factory recovery Images..

    If you want to Keep the factory recovery and recovery images??

    type> C:\Windows\System32\Reagentc /Setosimage /Path R:\RecoveryImage /Target C:\Windows /Index 1

    assuming the install* file(s) are on "R" and in a folder called "RecoveryImage"

    - change drive letter and folder name to suit your system setup and C to your windows drive letter (G ??)

    Then go to control panel > recovery > Create a recovery drive..

    At that point you will have the factory recovery on a usb stick..

    You can then delete the 3 partitions in question and merge all the space
