How to merge two partitions

Hey guys,

I want to merge two partitions, D: (doens't contain nothing) with F: (my partition of backup, contain many files).

But, is there any problem if the partition D: is on the left side of the F:? It's possible to do this with the Disk Management in Seven?

The screen explains better:



And sorry for my bad English, i'm from Brazil. I appreciate any help.

Hi,

The problem is that Windows reads disks from left to right which means that you could only delete the F: partition and 'extend' D:. You're going to need to download something like Paragon Partition Manager which should do just what you need.

Hope it helps

After discovering Speccy, I saw this and now I'm curious. Do I have one hard drive that was shrunk to have two 70 GB partitions or do I have two hard drives? If they are two partitions, can I merge them(formatting XP)?
