Generally, users would create multiple partitions on their hard drives. Thus, combining unallocated partitions is vital, especially when the C drive is out of space. However, Windows Disk Management won't allow users to merge non-adjacent partitions. Also, to merge unallocated partitions in Disk Management, you should delete one of the partitions to extend another.

Luckily, EaseUS Partition Master Professional will get you covered. This powerful tool can break the restrictions and merge separate parts without losing data. If you have a third partition in the middle of two unallocated space, you can follow this tutorial to merge partitions securely:
