Best Partition Manager for Windows
merge 3 NTFS partitions into 2 (Win XP) without reinstalling

I partitioned my hard drive as follows:

  • C as primary
  • S partition.

I would now like to have only one partition, C.

So I deleted the S partition.

How do I add this S partition, which is now deleted, to the C partition?

Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management Right click on the C: partition and select Extend Volume. Note that it must be NTFS and there must be empty space next to it to be able to extend it.

I had to right click on the S; then I could Extend the Volume Now S is green and free space; but how does this work? C did not extend; same size – RBrattas Feb 12 '10 at 22:56

You can use Parted Magic. It's pretty handy and free.

GParted is also a nice solution, it's available on most Linux Live CDs, especially Ubuntu. Just install it on a USB stick, boot from it, and when you're in Linux, run GParted to edit the partitions as you wish.

There's also the gparted Live-CD itself: – Bobby Feb 12 '10 at 21:02

You will have to use a third-party software like Partion Magic

You can download free trial but this good application is not free...

This an example among a lot of other application. It's up to you to chose the one that fits your needs.

You can boot from a Linux LiveCD and use GParted.
