How to Merge Partitions on SSD in Windows 11/10 [Step-by-Step Guide]

Updated by Sherly on Nov 10, 2022

Merging partitions is a popular trend that can effectively reduce the number of partitions on your computer's hard drive, which is rather significant on an SSD since SSD usually has less capacity than HDDs. So if you are looking for an easy way to merge partitions on SSD, you are on the right page now. We will introduce three easy ways to merge partitions in Windows. But first, let's figure out why we need to merge partitions on an SSD.

Why Merge Partitions on SSD

Merging partitions means merging two partitions into one or merging a partition with unallocated space on the SSD to expand the partition space. However, why do we need to merge partitions on an SSD? The compelling reasons are as follows:

Increase Storage Space:

For example, if your SSD is not properly partitioned and the C drive full issue occurs, but there is enough free space on drive D or another drive, you can merge drive C with another drive to solve this problem.

Manage Partitions Well:

If you have too many partitions on your hard drive, it's not easy to manage them, and you can easily forget where your important files are stored, so merging partitions helps to manage them efficiently. Besides, if you have many partitions on an SSD, they may be too small to store large files like movies.

Way 2. Merge Partitions on SSD with Disk Management

What is Disk Management? It can help you merge partitions in Windows 10/11, but you cannot combine two partitions directly. Instead, you must delete the partition and use the "Extend Volume" option in Disk Management. Now, follow the following steps to try.

Step 1. Right-click on This PC > Manage > Computer Management > Storage > Disk Management.

Step 2. Choose the partition with more free space and right-click on it.

Step 3. Select the "Delete Volume" option.

choose delete volume

Step 4. Then, right-click on the targeted partition you want to extend and select the "Extend Volume" option.

Step 5. Follow the Extend Volume wizard and finish merging two partitions.

This function is available when your unallocated space is adjacent to the targeted partition you want to extend. For example, if you want to merge two partitions directly or with non-contiguous unallocated space, you will find the "Extend Volume" grayed out. Under this circumstance, you can turn to EaseUS Partition Master.

You can try the next method if you are a computer professional and want to use Diskpart commands to merge partitions.

Way 3. Merge Partitions on SSD with CMD

Administrators can use Diskpart to perform scans to build, delete and resize hard drive partitions. It is also useful for merging partitions. Follow the steps below to try.

Step 1. Open the Start menu, and type the command: diskpart.exe

Step 2. Then type list volume and hit Enter.

Step 3. Type the command: select volume e

Replace e with the correct volume letter.

Step 4. Then, type delete volume to make the partition unallocated.

Step 5. After the steps above, type the command to merge partitions with unallocated space: extend 

During the process, if you meet a problem like "Diskpart failed to extend the volume", there is a link for you to help:
