    Merging non-adjacent partitions on the same disk.


    I bought a new pc, but when they set it up for me, they split the single drive into two partitions. I've been trying to merge them again, but there's a Healthy Recovery partition between the C drive and the D drive partitions.

    I've downloaded AOMEI Partition assistant, but it is also unable to merge the two partitions.

    Welcome to tenforums, Beiden.

    Have you tried deleting D: and then moving the recovery partition to the end of the disk? If that works, you can simply expand C: then.

    There's nothing sacred about the recovery partition and it can be re-established if lost or unhooked from advanced boot options.

    Of course, any partition operations should only follow a complete image taken by a reliable tool - Macrium Reflect Free (or paid) for example.

    BTW, the best location for the recovery partition is right after the OS partition ( C: ).

    Create an image of the recovery partition, delete it, "merge" the two partitions, resize the new partition to the right to make space for the recovery partition, restore it to this unallocated space. After this, check that the recovery partition works.

    But, for me, the existing scheme is better, assuming that the last partition is a data partition.
