How to merge 2 partitions?

Hey everyone, I decided to delete my recovery partition since I can't burn them to disks because I don't have the appropriate program. So now, I have 10.88GB of unallocated space that I want to merge with Partition (C). How do I do this? Here's a picture:

Update

Would have been nice to post a reply to show how he fixed it

Anyhow, here's how to do it:

First, right click the spare partition you want to merge, scroll down to delete volume and click on it. Once done, select your primary partition, the one that you want your spare partition to merge with. Right click and scroll down to extend volume and click on it. Click next in the box that appears. The default settings that appear should be fine unless you feel the need to change anything. Click next, then click finish. Viola!

Sweet...

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)?
