    Merge several unallocated spaces into one.


    Hello guys,

    I was wondering if you can help me out with this, I have three, unallocated spaces on my laptop and I want to merge them into one new partition. Bear in mind that I have basic disk partitioning, do I need to transition to dynamic and is it possible to loss some data in the process ?

    Can't re-allocate unallocated space from deleted partition

    I tried the link you recommended, but didn't find any solution to my problem.

    Most of them were suggesting different 3rd party programs for the problem I'm having, but it seems like the unallocated space I want to merge has to be directly adjacent to the space I want to merge it to. Is there any way around this?

    As you can see by the image, there's a 858MB space for Recovery that is between my primary partition and the unallocated space I want to merge with. Is there any way to move the 858 space on the other side of the unallocated space so I can merge the two
    that I want to merge?

    Thanks.

  3. Expanding C drive partition

    The next step is to merge back that unallocated free space with the system partition. Right click the System volume then click the ‘Extend Volume’ option on the contextual menu, click ‘Yes’ when the warning appears.

    A wizard will now begin that will guide through the steps to merge back the unallocated space with your system partition.

    The wizard provides a simple procedure to merge back the unallocated space with the system drive. Once you have selected the space, click Next, at the end of the wizard, you will see the amount allocated.

    Merge several unallocated spaces into one.

    Download: MiniTool Partition Wizard
    Install then run.
    Right click on C: -> Move/Resize. A Windows popup . Hold down C: then drag to the left. Do the same for D: and E:
    Click "OK" then click "Apply", The program will reboot then perform the change.
    Once done, you should have: C:, D:, E: and ~60GB unallocated at the end.

    He also has to move the System Reserved partition to the left as well. Basically what @topgundcp stated, but move the System Reserved partition with the rest of the others.

    Also, when you are done moving partitions, you are going to have to convert E: drive to a logical partition. You cannot have more than 4 primary partitions on an MBR hard drive, and you are wanting to add a 5th partition. So the current E: drive and the partition you create after it will have to be logical.

    Correct. I missed that.

    The other option is to move the boot files to the C: drive partition using a program like EasyBCD. Then you can just delete the System Reserved partition.

    Merge several unallocated spaces into one.

    Thanks!

    This advice and tool helped me remove an insignificant, yet irritatingly unallocated black box partition at the beginning of a brand new external hard drive.

    I'm forever appreciative of the news, help, and tips I find here.
