Combining partitions

Hello everyone I need big help on this one

My disk management looks like this

I would like to:
- combine Music and Recorded TV with Video partition

- question is how to do that if I don't want anything on Video partition to be erased?

Is the New Volume empty? You basically need a "blank" or empty space to expand your Music into and then transfer your Videos into this new Expanded Music. You could then delete your Empty Video partition and them "expand" your Expanded Music partition again! I always use Partition Wizard Free! when adjusting partitions. Their FAQ videos are good as well.

Whatever you have on there, cut 'n' paste to your Music folder. When you expand a partition you can only expand it to the right hand side (I think I got that right!!).Then use Partition Wizard Free! to delete your New Volume, expand your Music etc. etc..

One word of advice (a few really), read everything twice before hitting any buttons and do watch their video. Explains what I'm trying to write so much better!

I don't think that there is much you can do non-destructively because the two partitions are not contiguous...

You running Windows 7 32bit? If so you can merge H, J, and G, then shrink it, then create a partition from that free space with EASEUS Partition Master. It is free for 32bit.

Another (!!!) word of warning. Check your System Restore when you've finished (you've got new, different partitions). You don't want to go two weeks down the road and find you've got no previous restore points.
