    Move the files, backed up. Use Easeus to delete both partitions, merge, make new parition, and move files back.

    Merge Partitions and re-install

    Hello

    I have just bought a new Windows 10 laptop which came with a 500gb SSD drive partitioned as follows;

    EFI / OS Drive / recovery / Data

    There is no DVD drive and hence no recovery or OS / driver disks.

    I want to merge the OS drive with the data drive. Third party partition software will do this but wants to merge the recovery partition with it....no good if ultimately the OS drive fails?

    I have been told to reinstall a full version of Windows 10 to solve this problem, so I have to download Windows 10 using microsoft's media creation tool. I have also been advised to first clone my system onto an external drive.

    How do I make a clone?

    Do I have to merge the partitions before I reinstall? Do I then format the resulting One drive?

    How do I preserve the EFI partition, or will a re-install re-create this?

    Will a re-install re-create another recovery partition?

    Does the Windows 10 re-install include all the necessary drivers?
