    I use it all the time. I do not have a system reserve partition.
    Well when I let Windows 10 Pro do a clean install, it remade all my partitions on my ssd and I let it do whatever it wanted. So Windows 10 made 4 partitions, one was recovery partition 450mg, one fat32-100mb, one called "other" 16mb, and then my system primary partition. 232gb. That's all Windows 10 Pro made or wanted.

    Ok sam glad you found a way that you liked!! That's really all that matters. I have used MiniTool 9.1 to merge my partitions thou, and it worked fine. Free version. I always use MiniTool from my bootable dvd thou. I never used it from my desktop, even thou lots of others do. Again, glad you fixed your partitions. :)
    Mike....
    Comparison of different version of Mini Tool 9.1 on their official Page also mentioned that free version does not allow merging of partitions. I do not know how you are merging with free version. May be merging is allowed through bootable dvd. I tried through Desktop.

    Its not disabled in my free version, I'll show you a screen shot on mine, where if you looked, it IS a choice.

    Yeah, but actually click on merge icon and attempt to do a merge and it will tell you that option is not available in the free version.

    Yup, but I did use this in version 9.0 and it did work......just never thought to try it in the new update, as I didn't need too. Well that pisses me off..... Sorry for my mis-information

    No No sorry, it happens with everyone. It is always said that teachers also learn from their students questions. ( just to remind Easeus Partition Manager free do more things than Mini Tool ). Just feeling, I am in my home and discussing with my friends. Thanks to all. If any one want to post something, he can.
    Will wait for one more day and then will close this thread as the purpose is now accomplished.

    Yup true words, also because of this thread, folks have been telling us that Macrium Reflect free version can do this too, I use MR for my image backups all the time, but have not actually used it for changing partitions. seems to be a bit harder than what I want. Maybe I just got to learn more about MR. But right now, I have no need to change any of my partitions. Those days are done for me.....hopefully.... I WILL take a peek at your Easeus Partition Manager too!!
    You Take care sam, Mike... :)

    Great. That means everything is clean and Macrium did the job.
    BTW, the error message that you had earlier was from Macrium software. It was a bug so they updated it to version: 6.1.879
    Run Macrium->Other Tasks->Check For Updates... then it should download the patch and update for you.
    I was going to close this thread when one new problem came. I tried to increase the system reserved partition in my other Windows 10 PC with the same method from my Desktop Macrium but Macrium said this restore operation can not be done while the windows is running as window is using system reserve partition and advised to use Window PE rescue CD or boot menu. This problem did not come when I did the same method on my other computer.

    I don't know why it didn't work on your other Win computer, but, I always use my MR from my boot disk. I would think you would want to create at least one "Rescue Media" disk anyhow?? If someday, you couldn't access your C-drive, your only choice would be the rescue media disk, to fix or to restore a previous disk image. MR gives you 2 ways to make this disk, DVD or USB whichever choice is best for you. I have to make both, as 1 of my computers will not boot from any USB port, while my newer computer does both, with no problem.
    Just my opinion on this......didn't mean to butt in.....:)

    If a disk you are working on currently running Windows then no software would allow you to do it, this includes Macrium, Mini Tool, AOMEI Partition Assistant, EASUS etc.... You must do it offline. When you boot up your PC using Recovery disk or Macrium Rescue disk, the PE environment loaded into RAM and run from there so all HD/SSD are available for you to modify the disk layout. In the first case, you did restore to another disk then that's perfectly OK since that disk was not running Windows.
