That way it worked in full glory. But let me share that sometimes it fails. This is why I clone a drive before I try Partition Magic, Gparted or such. Are you ready if the partition software doesn't work out? Can you restore from your backup?
Some will only learn this lesson first hand.
I am in a real bind. I have a lot of left over partitions from linux installations, and I want to merge the 27 gig(drive j) with the 5 gig(drive c). The 27 gig has nothing on it as it has been recently formatted for NTFS (i made sure to update the bootloader and tested it). When i try the merge tool in Paragon Partition manager 30 day full trial, it will not let me click the merge tool button no matter what. I then found the delete tool. I looked at the delete tool, but it does not do what i want and combine that partition with the 5 gig. I REALLY need help with this. I will take all suggestions for (free or full trialware) software that is easy to use, or someone can walk me through. thank you VERY MUCH!!!!! hurry, i might die by the low disk space bubble! lol.
