Windows 7: How do I combine unallocated memory to my C drive?

How do I combine unallocated memory to my C drive?

I've been surfing the net for hours upon hours trying to search for the answer to this question, there has to be a way, as a student of software development using VB and Java and such, I know there's a way to do this but here's some more detail.

I have 10GB of unallocated memory, it used to be partitioned for recovery, but I have a 1TB ex. hard drive for that so I'd like to combine it to my main drive.

Also I've just installed Windows 7 Professional and it's driving me up the wall trying to get it back to XP as much as possible, there's just features that they tried to make better, but made worse.

Anyway, I'm trying to use EASEUS but it won't give me an option to merge the 10GB to the main drive, and I've formatted that unallocated space multiple times. Anybody with any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I assume you mean 10 GB of unallocated drive space rather than a memory issue?

Can you post a screen shot of Windows Disk Management so we can better so your partition layout?

Yes, I meant drive space. Come to find out, all I had to do was assign it a drive and merge it like that, I was trying to merge it without giving it a name.

And here it took me only about 10 hours to figure that out thanks for the response though
