Merging C and D drive left with unallocated space! How to merge this ?

Hello Guys,

Just got a new SSD(240gb) and installed windows on it, while installation i selected two partition ,thinking 100gb is more than enough for OS, after installation i found 25gb has taken by Asus restore data and other nearly 85gb taken by Windows 7 ultimate OS(why so much space it takes!is this normal)?..so i thought to merge the d drive with C drive, when i used Easeus partition manager to merge the two drive , i have left with 6.25gb unallocated space which i couldn't merge at all!!

*How to merge this un allocated space?
*If i have just only C drive and started saving other data files in the same drive will it slow down the computer? I do have another bay in my laptop , i can save data files there, leaving just OS in the SSD (C) drive.
*Nearly 5.2 gb free in the Primary partition (25gb) where factory restore data are saved, can i use this free space without any problem?

I would give AOMEI Partition Assistant a go, it is very easy to use.
I don't understand why the Windows 7 Ultimate OS has taken up so much HD space. It shouldn't be any where near that, it should be in the region of 10 to 15 GB's of disk space on average with a clean install.
Did you do a CLEAN install?

I hope this helps!

EDIT:
Have you done a disk cleanup to see if that makes a difference.
I bet there are loads of restore points that you don't need!
Is there a Windows.old folder (it will show up in the disk cleanup)?

Thank you Paul, no! i didn't, read few threads regarding that in Asus forum, looks like i have to be ready for some after trouble, will do that in some point.

Perhaps it is not too late to backup all your data files and do a clean install.
It might save you a lot of time and grief in the future.
I would definately run disk cleanup first though and see what it says.
I edited my previous post by the way, did you see that?

I hope this helps!

Thank you so much for your advise Paul, just checked your edited comments, will do first disk cleanup first, i agree clean install is good, i have to read more regarding that.
