I am not sure if it is possible to marge two partitions which are not adjacent; at least using Disk management or partition wizard, it is not possible.

Use free Partition Wizard bootable CD to Move/Resize Partition - Video Help.

In your case you'd rightclick on F first to Resize, grab it with mouse and drag it to the far right, click OK.

Then rightclick C to Resize, drag right border to the right to take up the space, Click OK, then Apply both steps.

I would reconsider keeping your backup on the same HD since only external storage protects you if there is a HD failure.
