    can't merege drives of same SSD to one drive.


    Hi.
    I have a Nvme SSD that is 500GB. It has 2 drives, C and D. I cant delete D and expand C because there are small drives in between that can't be erased. How can I get over this problem and merge C into the entire drive?
    Attached is a snapshot. Windows 11 home.
    Thanks!

    those unwanted parts appear to be 3,4 and 5. But there mignt be a tiny msr part that isnt shown in diskmgmt.

    so check using

    admin cmd prompt type:
    diskpart
    (then press enter)
    sel dis 0
    (then press enter)
    lis par
    (then press enter)
    now you know which numbers those partitions are

    you can delete them like this: ( replce # with the partition number )

    sel par #
    (then press enter)
    delete partition override
    (then press enter)

    make sure there is nothing you want to keep before deleting the partitions. the 12gb might have oem recovery image on it

    C is partition 3 and D is partition 7

    it is 4, 5, and 6 you want to delete

    you can delete them in diskpart one at a time like this: ( replace # with the partition number )

    sel par #
    (then press enter)
    delete partition override
    (then press enter)

    I can't select it.

    DISKPART> sel par 4

    There is no disk selected to set the partition.
    Select a disk and try again.

    now do
    admin cmd prompt:
    reagentc /enable

    that is to put winre back on the F8 key and allow access to the full the system recovery options instead of just the limited options in bootux.
