How to Merge Partitions in Windows without Data Loss
The hard disk on the computer is just like a house with different-sized rooms. It has different partitions to load your all files. When you are running out of space on one partition, there is the problem that you want to extend it by merging two partitions, no data loss which would cost you dollars to retrieve your lost data.
To merge partitions without data loss, you’d better choose a professional partition program. If you haven’t chosen one yet, Spotmau PowerSuite Golden can be a nice one, which can help to merge your partitions in 2 steps. Let’s try how to merge partitions in Windows 7/XP/Vista step by step.
Step1. Choose the partition for merging
Launch the PowerSuite, go to “Disk Partition” and choose “Partition Genius”. Select the partition you are going to merge with another, and then hit “Partition Management > Merge”. The there will be a pop-up message recommending you to check the partition before operation, you can choose “Yes” to do it, which only takes you seconds, or directly choose “No” to skip it.
Step2. Combine partitions
Choose the adjacent partitions to merge with your selected partition. One of the partitions will be extended, and the other will be shrunk. Such as the image below, merge partition I with partition F. Then the content of partition I will be merged into partition F as a folder. Here the folder is named I_1343.
