How do you merge two hard drive partions? Recommend me a program?

Hello , I just recently purchased a ASUS computer.

But it came with 2 partions

C:/ 75 GB
D:/ 275 GB

The C:/ Has all the windows files.

The D:/ has nothing on it. I want to merge both C:/ and D:/, without losing anything on C:/,

Can anyone recommend me a program to do this?

Thank you.

You'll need to delete the D: partition using the following tutorial...
Partition or Volume - Delete

...and then extend the size of the C: drive using the following tutorial.
Partition or Volume - Extend

This can all be done from Disk Management (a Windows program) so no external software is needed.

EDIT: Before this, follow what Shawn has posted below.

Hello The Last Byte, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Before doing anything, please post a screenshot of your Disk Management (diskmgmt.msc) window first to make sure that you will not have any problems with doing what Jaidyn posted above.

Hmm, now I cannot extend the C;/ partion, but the free space thing gives me an option to delete the partion. Do I do that? Or what?

Did you delete the D: partition first? If you did, you should be able to extend the C: drive.
