    Need help consolidating partitions


    Attached is a screenshot of Disk Management. I would like to get rid of the partition named: "Windows 10 (OLD) (GNeed help consolidating partitions :)" and consolidate the space with the partition named "Windows 10 (NEW) (CNeed help consolidating partitions :)". Windows 10 (OLD) is an old version of Windows 10 for which I have no further use. I have the apps:

    1. easyBCD (free version)
    2. MiniTool Partition Wizard

    Not comfortable using the apps to accomplish the consolidation without some guidance. Thank you.......

    :)

    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

    Consolidating Scattered Partition Chunks?


    The hard drive of my notebook PC looks like this in Disk Manager:


    Need help consolidating partitions [​IMG]


    As you can see, the partition named My Files is split into three "chunks" (what are they actually called?).

    Is there a way of consolidating these scattered partition chunks?
