Merging Partitions

http://live.pirillo.com/ – People create logical disk partitions for various reasons: sometimes it’s to separate data, while other partitions can contain different operating systems, and still others can be used to store the swap space. But, how do you remerge partitions into one physical drive, instead of having multiple logical partitions? There are few tools you can use.

Partition Magic is the worlds most famous partition manager, which has all of the GUI goodness that Windows users have come to expect.

Ranish is a free partition manager that will let you boot into a safe environment where you can manage the hard disk partitions.

Windows Vista does come with a halfway decent partition management utility, which should let you delete and reallocate partition space.

Of course, if you’re feeling adventurous, you could always use fdisk.

What do you use to manage your partitions?
