How to Merge Hard Disk Partitions

Merging the partitions is also a very simple process. This process is also most useful when i will write Posts for Dual Booting. In this process you have to select a primary Partition among all your partition. That means you have to select a Partition in which you are going to merge all your Partitions.

In this post i have considered my ‘C’ Partitions as my Primary Partition, that means i will merge other partitions into ‘C’ Partition. You also have to make sure that you backup all your data to an External device. OR You can also transfer your data to your Primary Partition. The data stored in the Partitions we are going to delete will be lost (not forever).
