Hi there;

Gparted can create/split partitions...what about merge? Is he capable? Partition Magic seems having ability to merge but i got an error...

The scenario was:
2 partitions; one is NTFS, the other is ext3...
PartitionMagic 8.0 needs the partitions to be merged must be adjacent...OK, mine partitions are also adjacent...

First I change the file type into NTFS from ext3...Then, I merge it...Partition Magic wants to reboot the system...Ok...but when rebooting, he couldn't merge and a batch error he gives...I couldn't give the exact error...

My question are:
Is there any tool not only partitioning but also merging apar from PartitionMagic?
Is GParted capable what I want?

Best regards...
