    Combine partitions?

    Alright here's the situation, I have a 600gb hard drive split in half by my partitions.

    One that I'm currently using has Vista, but it's running low on space, I'd like to merge the other partition to my existing one, without losing anything and without having to restore backup images.

    Is this possible? If so, which programs are able to do this effectively?
    Thanks in advance.

    You have to delete and format the partition to merge the free space into the other existing "simple volume". So no I don't think there is a way.

    Hmm, I could have sworn that merging an empty with an existing was possible.

    Guess I must have heard wrong. I'm seriously hoping Adam can confirm this :P
