Merging two unallocated spaces?
Hi, I hope I'm in the right section.
This is what my current HDD looks like
NTFS (C 242.4GB
Linux Swap 494.2MB
I want to merge those two unallocated spaces and create a new partition but I can't find a way to merge them.
I think I have to somehow move the linux partition before merging but not really sure.
here is a link to what my HDD looks like in Gparted
Can anyone help me with this?

You simply can't do what you want to do -- merge spaces with one more partitions between them. No tool will do this. Period.
You will have to do the following:
1) Move the Linux partitions to the right to shift the unallocated space to the left
2) Shrink the Extended partition to just use the allocated space
3) Expand the NTFS partition to fill the unallocated space, or allocate a new partition for that same space.
Don't know what tools you're planning on using to do this, but if you're going to expand the NTFS partition, do NOT use GParted; instead, use the Win7 Disk Management utility.
