I am looking for a reputable software to merge to partitions.  Merge the D drive into the C Drive for one large C Drive (primary partition) without losing or harming any of the data on the C Drive.  The D Drive is empty.  Looks like Partition Magic is no longer on the market which is what I used to use back in the day...

    EaseUs Partition Manager

    this should handle it nicely.... Just a note... I have always preferred to pull the HDD and slave it into another machine, and modify it there..... Just always had better outcomes.....

    "... the D: drive is empty ..."   ==>   In that case this is trivial (and does NOT require any 3rd party software), assuming your drive currently "looks" like this:


    ... where the C's represent the C: partition and the D's the D: partition

    First, go to Disk Management [Right-click on Computer; select Manage; then click on Disk Management] and delete the D: partition (right-click on it and select Delete).

    Now (still in Disk Management) highlight the C: partition, right-click, and select Extend Volume.

    Done :-)
