Many people have been in this situation: The space of system partition is running out, while the adjacent partition has so much space left. Sometimes due to different reasons, we need to merge partitions to create a larger partition. This seemingly should not be hard to do. But in fact, merging partitions is not as easy as additive operation. In Windows built-in Disk Management, we need to delete an adjacent partition first for partitions merging (after deleting, it will become unallocated space). This is very inconvenient for the user who doesn't have an external storage disk drive. Can we just directly merge two partitions without deleting one of them? AOMEI Tech’s merge partition disk utility - Partition Assistant could be the best answer.
