    can i merge 2 different hard drives into one partition


    my son laptop comes with 100GB SSD (C Drive) Hard disk and 1TB (D Drive) normal hard disk.

    is it possible to merge these 2 hard disk into one partition of lets say 500GB size, since the C Drive is 90% full.

    if not

    is it possible to move Windows, Users and Program files folder to D Drive without installing windows 10 again.

    :)

    W7 Hard drive partition issue

    to get rid of that 100 meg windows partition that setup creates for you on a new install on a blank hdd:

    - press shift+f10 when on the partition management screen in setup <-- this opens a command prompt
    - diskpart <-- start the windows command line partition management tool
    - list disk <--- list the installed hdds in this computer for the next step
    - select disk 0 <- might have to replace 0 with the number of the correct disk
    - clean <-- this will erase all data on the disk you selected one step up- dont use the wrong disk!
    - create partition primary <- creates a primary partition taking up all space on the drive, adjust the command if necessary
    - exit, exit to exit diskpart and the command prompt
    - click refresh in partition manager and select your newly created partition and install to that

    Partition or multiple hard drives?

    As the title suggests. Is it worth installing say a 36GB drive for the OS soley or partitioning an existing larger drive with either 2 or more partitions? I am currently running Vista 32bit and want to try out 64bit and am sick of reformatting the whole drive. Any suggestions?

    Disk management can't merge two partition. (One of them was a linux based partition)

    Hi Kevin,

    There are different factors that can contribute as to why you not able to merge or extend the space used by a specific partition on the hard drive. one possible cause could be due to the unallocated space having a different file format. For us to resolve
    your concern, kindly answer the questions below:

    • Was the option "extend volume" greyed out?
    • Were there any error messages when you attempted to extend or merge the unallocated space?
    • What file system did you use when you formatted the partition?
    • Which version and build of Windows 10 is installed on your computer?

    As an initial recommendation, you can have a look at the post of Waido2525 in this
    thread. His answer received 191 votes from people that have resolved their
    issue following the suggested steps.

    We look forward to your response to our queries.
