NTFS Partition Merge for W2K

By toconnell ·
Besides purchasing a copy of PartitionMagic 7.0 or higher, does anyone have way to merge two NTFS partitions (both of the same HD)? Without reformatting or fdisk or harming any installed files. I only have to preform this once for a client and hopefully never again.

Wow, NTFS was intended to stop such actions. While you can use a low level disk utility to merge the partitions it will be very unlikely that any installed applications residing on the partition that will disappear will function anymore. References to those applications will ultimately be looking for the application using the old
drive assignment. If the disappearing partition contains only data then back-up the data and remove the old partition then look to the net for free partition resizing programs. when you get the partiton resized larger replace the data.

regards and good luck
