Well, the space that is seperate is for system restore. I dont think you want to merge them togother..I think you can turn down the space for the system restore in Computer Prep google it..there is an option such as a slider bar that lets you move the size for the hard drive space that is left out for system restore..And if not that i think you can get Partition Magic and merge the partitions..
