In Windows system,disk partitioning or hard disk partitions mergence by local partition management could be a little disappointing due to some unfavorable restrictions. As we know, for a piece of MBR disk, it can only contain 3 primary partitions with 1 extended partition or 4 partitions which are all primary partition. If there’s a free space along with 4 partitions and you want to create more partitions on this unallocated space, you can only seek help from a third-party tool.

There is another disappointing fact in Windows built-in partition management. Before merging two adjacenthard disk partitions, one needs to back up all the data and files on the latter one. Because we need to delete the latter partition for creating free or unallocated space. Essentially, “merge” partitions in partition management is to add a free/unallocated space to the partition prior to it.

Then what could be a better choice other than partition management? You might find satisfying answer in AOMEI Tech’s Partition Assistant.
