Windows 7: Problem Merging Non Adjacent Partitions in Windows 7

One other option for you would be to remove the Windows 7 System Reserved partition. Then it would be a simple task that could be done with Disk Management.

I don't know if you would want to go to that extent. I would read up on the pros and cons first. But if you are game, see here: System Reserved Partition - Delete

I'm still holding out to see what others say about free Partition Wizard. I only tried it that once. There is always the possibility that I am just a "person of diminished intellectual capabilities".

Do you recall what the message was that PW gives you when you attempt to perform the procedure?

There's nothing wrong with the current version of gParted either. It's free, and its not some neutered shareware with disabled features (half of which probably don't work as advertised) that can't be accessed until you send your credit card number to their website.

You should be careful who you call a "cheap prick"

Just because I don't want to blow $30 doesn't give you this right.

Who the **** do you think you are anyway?

I'm not "cheap" - I just don't like throwing money away.

Hey guys, be nice and cool down. No need to get at each other's throat. I am sure TVeblen made the remark jokingly. I would hate to see you guys banned from the forum.

if you have a flash drive that you don't mind formatting, format to fat32 then:
download unetbootin
use unetbootin to download and install gParted or PartedMagic as a bootable flash drive

I'm sorry Serpentz. I didn't mean to offend. Just a bad attempt at humor.
Please accept my apologies.
