I've got 5 partitions on my hard-disk and I've got two of them (side-by-side) which are essentially my movies and TV show collections. Since I ran out on space for the first drive, I used the second drive. However, I really just want to merge these two so that the total space becomes roughly 442GB (216GB + 226GB). I don't have enough of storage to back up these files somewhere else and I don't want to lose any data in the process. Could you help me here?

Use Minitool partition wizard. It will allow you to achieve this.

It is pretty simple. If you cannot figure out how to do it, I can expand this answer.

EDIT

Apparently, minitool wont let you merge partitions unless you purchase pro version.
I found a different software: http://download.cnet.com/Easeus-Partition-Master-Free-Edition/3000-2248_4-10863346.html

They have a tutorial for merging partitions. I will summarize the steps:
From the screenshot above, I think the partitions are adjecent on disk(unless you have manipulated the screenshot)

  1. Open the tool and select your partition E:
  2. Right click and select Merge Partition.
  3. Choose partition G:.
  4. Select the destination partition and click Ok and then Apply.
  5. This should merge your partitions

You can find the full tutorial here(they also have a video):http://www.partition-tool.com/easeus-partition-manager/merge-partition.htm
