You can't merge them as they are separated by your E partition.

You need to backup the data on the E partition then delete it.

Once you've done that you an create a new partition on the resultant blank space.

Macrium seems a popular disk manager with people on these forums.

I've heard people saying that doing it with a 3rd Party Software is more safer (Its only what I've heard). Good Luck.

Partition Magic 8 is incompatible with Windows 7.

Macrium will do the job just fine.

1. how can i merge the partitions using Macrium?
2. Notice in the picture; that the displayed size for
the free space for any new partitions is 362GB!!!!!

Try using EASEUS Partition Master Home Edition (free for home use). Use it to MOVE your "E:\" to the head of the drive thus moving the unallocated space behind "E:\" but in front of your Linux partitions. Then you can increase the size of "E:\" to take up the unallocated space "behind" it.

The software will respect your Linux and works in Win7.

In EASEUS Partition Master you would select (click on) your "E:\" partition - the cursor turns into a four-headed arrow. Next, click-hold-drag "E:\" to the far left (beginning of the drive), release.

To then add the unallocated space to the moved "E:\" drive, hover over the right boundary of the partition; when you see the double-headed arrow click and drag the boundary to the right and take up all of the unallocated space then release.

In the lower left corner of EASEUS Partition Master click the APPLY button and follow the prompts.
