"ok i dont know exactly how to do it, but here is a program to do it with, you cant do it with windows
im sure you can find out how to do it in the help files
also, if your going to merge them, dont format it with windows, leave the space unformatted for now and see if partition magic can merge the drive with unformatted space first, if it can just quick format it"
Um did u know that program is not free right? I would like to merge the drives still, but do you know a way that I can do it at no cost?
