    How to merge partitions ?


    I had a 17 GB unallocated partition.
    I changed it to a Primary partition.
    It is empty.

    Can I merge it with the C:\ partition ?

    Hey David,

    If the partition was just to the immediate right of C: by one, then you could extend C: into the "New Volume" once it was unallocated space again.

    Since it's not, you could use a free program like MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition to do so though.

    Hope this helps.

    David, partitions have to be adjacent to merge. You basically have to step it over one partition at a time. This explains it well: How to Merge Partitions with AOMEI Partition Assistant?

    But, if you unallocate the 17.34 partition you can do it directly as in case 2 of the link I provided.

    Edit: Ha,ha. Shawn and I stepped on each other. Actually I guess I stepped on him according to the time stamp. So sorry.

    You imaged first right?

    PS: Deleting the volume unallocates it.

    Yep.
    I make 2 at a time to be redundant.

    I could restore the system to make it unallocated space again.
    Would that make things easier ?

    Nar, you could just delete the "New Volume" to make it unallocated. Afterwards, use any one of the programs to extend C: into the unallocated space to have it added to C:.

    I edited my post. Deleting the volume unallocates it.
