    Merging Unallocated Space with Primary Partition


    After I free upgraded from 8.1 to 10 a new partition showed up. I just deleted it and it became unallocated space.

    How can I merge this space with my primary partition. Both are on a 256 SSD.

    When I right click C: in disk management, the extend volume choice is grayed.

    Thanks

    Thank you. That is the best partition management software I have seen.

    that new partition that showed up was the windows 10 recovery partition in case you cant boot... now you don't have it... only way to get it back is to reinstall windows 10

    I could not find anything about the partition and there was nothing in it. Can't I make another recovery disc?

    You could remake it if you want Reset Recovery Image - Create in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    If you want it on your c:\ drive make a partition just a little bit bigger than the .wim described in the tutorial.

    But if you have a recovery disk or you make backups you perhaps don't need it. I deleted mine to save space as I have a bootable Windows 10 USB key anyway.
