Merging non-adjacent partitions in Windows 8.1
Posted on 2014-08-27
Hi, I've just cloned my 500MB disk and upgraded to a 1GB size one for my laptop, which has left me with a 465MB empty partition. Trouble is, it's not adjacent to the main C: partition, which is 451MB; I've got a 350MB and a 13GB recovery partitions in between when I look in Disk Management.
Can anyone suggest any reliable, easy and (ideally) free software to combine the 451MB and 465MB partitions without deleting anything on the C: drive? Ideally I'd like to do this with the drive in situ, but if I need to remove it and run it in a caddy attached to another computer (also running Win 8.1) I can.
Any tips about how to go about it gratefully received
