Open up Disk Management fully, now press the Prt Scr key on your keyboard.

Now open up paint and click on paste, now click on the icon right above paste, this will open up a small window, now click on save as, save the picture as a jpeg and save it to your desktop.

Now make a reply to your thread and use the paperclip to upload the picture you just saved to your desktop.


Ah, nevermind, go to sleep LOL

But if you want to take chances, let us know. It's your responsibility then.

PS, the paper clip:
I'll try to post a picture of my screen.Disk Management Window-untitled.jpg

1. It is good we looked because that so-called recovery partition is your active boot partition containing the bootmgr. You first have to move the bootmgr to C, else your system becomes unbootable.

Bootmgr - Move to C:\ with EasyBCD

Apart from the bootmgr, this partition seems to be completely empty. Is that correct. Open it and have a look.

2. Once you moved the bootmgr, you will have to delete that partition and volume to gain unallocated space. For that it is best to use the bootable CD of Partition Wizard (the .iso is in the last item on the website). Burn that to CD and boot with that CD.

Here is a tutorial on how to go about it.

3. Next you'll have to make an image of your C drive to an external disk - this is to be on the safe side. Here is how:

Imaging with free Macrium

4. Then you download the Macrium recovery .iso from my Skydrive. Burn that also to CD to have it handy in case something happens during the next step. You can also use that CD to make the image. Then you don't have to install Macrium.

5. Now you can use the Partition Wizard CD and extend your partition. Here is how:

How do you know it has the boot manager?

Regarding your #3 I have a HDD cloned of my SSD and I have recovery disks also. Is that enough?

The recovery partition is marked active. That means it is flagged in the MBR as bootmgr partition.

Easy BCD is not free. Any free software out there?

The partition I want to merge into my c drive partition is marked: Active, Recovery Partition.

My c drive partition shows the boot mgr there, I think: Boot, Crash Dump, Primary Partition.
