There are still many people using Windows XP as their OS now. This situation is one
commonly encountered by computer users, who often feel the C drive of computer is
not enough. Users tend to delete garbage files to free up space. Unfortunately, it
didn't last. The best way to solve this problem is extending partition or merging
partitions for XP. If only there was an empty partition!
Another situation is that you saved your files to each single partition before,
someday you find that two partitions saving similar data types, and want to merge
two partitions together. If only there was a merge partitions software!
There are many Windows XP partitions merging softwares. But, in this article, I will
focus on AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard, which is not only simple to use but
also protects your data. It supports Windows XP perfectly. So it perform well of
merging partitions under Windows XP.
Steps of Merging Partitions:
1. Right click the partition you want to merge, select “Merge Partitions”.
2. In the pop-up window, select the two partitions that you want to merge. And also
select one partition as the target partition. Then click “OK”.
3. Return to the main menu and click"Apply"to execute the partitions
You could also merge any unallocated space into any existing partition.
Partition Assistant could support at maximum two partitions merging every
time.So you have to merge three partitions together by merging twice.
To merge partitions, the two partitions must be adjacent. If it is not, copy the unwanted partition to
another first and delete it, so there will be an
unallocated space. Then you can merge them.
You could merge data partition into system partition, but could not merge system
partition into data partition.
In the above example, it is under Windows XP. However, under Windows 7 the
“system reserved” partition could not be merged.
There are no one partition software can guarantee 100% safe. So you’d betterback up your databefore merge partitions. In conclusion, welcome you to try Partition Assistant. Because it have some other practical functions such asresize partition,split partitionand so on.
