Well the simple answer is that you can not merge two Partitions into one with PM.

If you have enough room on the Primary partition you need to move all the data there and then with PM remove the second partition and then open up the Primary Partition to the size that you want it.

To delete the second Partition completely you would have to use FDISK to remove the Second Partition and you'll need to use the Non DOS option if you have a NTFS file system.

Now to recover your data you should be able to undo what you have done with PM and recover your Data without a problem but onlyIF YOU HAVE DONE NOTHING ELSE!

If you have tried to recover the Data in any way without undoing the changes made by Partition Magic the only real option is to take the drive to a Data Recovery House and pay your money and it will not be a cheap option at all.

You should always before playing with Partition Sizes perform a complete Data Backup just in case something goes wrong as it's a lot cheaper to do that then to pay out several thousand dollars to get your data back.
