Would it be possible to merge these two partitions?

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)?

Hi and welcome

You have drive 0. which contains 3 partitions on the same HD. If you want to delete one of them it can be done

Let us know when you are ready to do it

I'm willing to delete my XP partition now. Delete the partition? Where does the data go after that?

New question: How do I add the unallocated space to my C: partition? When I try to extend my C: partition, it doesn't give me anything to choose from. I've tried paragon but it gives me an error..

If you have already deleted the XP partition, don't format it or create a new volume, leave it "unallocated" and then you should be able to extend the "C" partition into the free space created.

I would like to merge the C Drive and the D drive partitions (same HD). when I right click on the D drive, delete is not active. Do I need to "mark partition as active" on the D drive to make "delete vloume" active before I can delete the D drive then extend the C drive?
