Merge

Merge feature enables to combines the disk space, which originally belongs to 2 adjacent partitions, into a single, larger partition. 

Please note that only NTFS, ReFS, FAT12. FAT16 and FAT32 partitions are supported. The order, in which 2 partitions have been chosen is important. You are always suggested to merge the partition with fewer data to the other one to save your time and effort. 

To merge partitions:
1. Select a partition and click Merge from the Feature List.
2. Select an adjacent partition to merge. 
3. Select to merge the space to 1 of the 2 specified partitions. All the contents on the other partition will be placed in a folder on the resulted jointed partition. 
4. Click OK when ready. All the introduced changes to the disk layout will be pended until applied in Pending Operation List.

Tips:
EaseUS Partition Master supports merging partitions on basic disk only. It cannot merge dynamic volumes.
◆ You can merge the NTFS partitions of different cluster size. 
◆ The 2 partitions you select to merge must be adjacent. It means there should be no other partitions except for unallocated space between these 2 partitions. If there is unallocated space, they will be also merged into the resulted joint partition. 
◆ Only the non-hidden partition can be merged.
◆ The boot partition, system partition as well as the partition where EaseUS Partition Master installed cannot be merged into any other partitions. 
◆ The unused space of the operating partitions should be more than 5% of the total partition space.
◆ After merging a FAT 16 partition and a FAT 32 partition or both of the partitions are FAT16 file system, the file system of the resulted joint partition will be changed into FAT32 automatically.
◆  NTFS partition cannot be merged into FAT partition.
