Merge unallocated space with D: drive


A

Andy

I am using Easeus and I want to merge 25 Gb of unallocated space with the D: partition.

I searched and could not find out how.

C: is the primary partition.

I already tried merging D: with F: ( 25 Gb) but that did not work.

What is the trick ?

Thanks,
Andy

This is a "merge"

+-------------+---------------+ +-----------------------------+
| G: (NTFS) | H: (NTFS) | ---> | G: (NTFS) |
+-------------+---------------+ +-----------------------------+

This is an "expand", as you expand the partition into unallocated space.

+-------------+---------------+ +-----------------------------+
| G: (NTFS) | unallocated | ---> | G: (NTFS) |
+-------------+---------------+ +-----------------------------+

In this example, you "move" H: out of the say, then "expand" G:

+-------------+---------------+---------------+
| G: (NTFS) | H: (NTFS) | unallocated | Move H: to the right
+-------------+---------------+---------------+

+-------------+---------------+---------------+
| G: (NTFS) | unallocated | H: (NTFS) | Now, expand G:
+-------------+---------------+---------------+

+-----------------------------+---------------+
| G: (NTFS) | H: (NTFS) |
+-----------------------------+---------------+

Most disk partitioning tools are pretty dumb, in that they
won't look at a queued up series of commands, and take the
shortest path (least amount of data movement) to get there.
So, like a chess match, you have to plan your series of
operations carefully, so that it takes as little time
as possible for yourself. If you need to "slosh" partitions
around, to get a nugget of empty space to the other side
of the disk, it can take all night.

Thanks Paul.

I moved the unallocated space in from of D: and expanded it to take over the unallocated space.
