    Merging Non-adjacent Disk Partitions Through Window's Disk Management GUI


    Hi,


    From what I've found so far, it doesn't look like Window's Disk Management GUI supports the function to merge two non-adjacent paritions. For example, I am not able to merge the 105.94 GB of Unallocated space to C Drive; the extend volume option is greyed out. see screenshot


    I have come across suggestions of using third-party software such as EaseUS to solve this problem https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us...e-volume/e6a5f085-8e95-487c-95aa-88055f4b3269.


    However, I'd rather put my trust in windows native features for important operations such as this. So I am wondering why doesn't windows support this function natively? Because this seems like a vey basic/important feature.


    Is it because of lack of demand/priorities or is it because this is a operation is super risky/dangerous? if the latter, could you elaborate on the potential risks and what to what out for?

    Merging to non-adjacent partitions

    Hi Tony,

    Windows disk management tools are rather limited, you will need a third party tool such as AOMEI partition assistant to achieve this.

    you need to move the partitions so that they are adjacent, then merge them.

    Partition Manager Software: Partition Magic Alternative for Windows PC and Server | AOMEI Partition Assistant

    (other tools are available, I happen to use this one)

  4. Merging Non-adjacent Disk Partitions Through Window's Disk Management GUI

    Disk management console view is not up-to-date

    i dont know how to fix your disk management, but i can fix your partition problems...




    open up Command Prompt with admin rights. (Right click, run as admin)


    enter in
    DISKPART
    list disk

    then find the Disk number for your Raid array... lets call it number 7 ( you can tell what disk is what by the total size)
    type in

    Select Disk 7
    List Partition (will give you a list of all the partitions..)
    Select Partition 1 (im assuming you only have 1 partition on Disk 7) repeat this step if you have more partitions.
    ASSIGN


    that should get the array up and running ready to use.


    EDITED.

    any problems, post back ^^


    Still EDITING *Stick Out Tongue Merging Non-adjacent Disk Partitions Through Window's Disk Management GUI :p

    side question, have you tried restarting the PC?
