Question: Windows 7 merging partitions
I have Windows 7 Home Basic. My primary disk space (C:) has 24GB and the next partition (G:) is a empty drive with 50GB. Due to memory out of space issue in C I need to merge C and G drives and the actual problem is options of 'Delete volume' and 'Expand volume' is disabled in both the drives. Only 'Shrink volume' is active in the drives. So I cannot extend system partition. Pls help me in solving out this issue.
