    Hey I was just wanting some suggestions for simplistic, stable, trusted software that will allow me to merge partitioned hard drives, because as far as I know the built-in Windows Disk Manager doesn't support that. I had to partition my hard drive but it's not necessary anymore (I also have some loose ends on my hard drive I'd like to tidy up). Thanks in advance.

    I always boot SystemRescueCD from the cd tray and then run the Gparted program. It's pretty easy to use and, IMHO, everybody should have this toolkit on hand.

    Try easeus partition manager (home), it's free for private use.

    The defrag software I use is ultimate defrag by disktrix, which is pretty handy for moving data to the front end (high performance) or back end of a partition (archiving).

    I haven't found an easy way to merge disk partitions, someone always wants you to get an outside program and the "Merge" option in Disk Manager never seems to be available. I just reinstall the OS and set the partitions after a hard format. Seems quicker in the long run even though it can take up to 6 hours it's still faster than trying to find an answer.
