    I've always found that partition magic works really well for that kind of stuff. not sure if you can find a free version...

    does anyone know if fdisk can merge partitions it?

    Nah, Fdisk can only create, delete and format FAT 16 and 32 partitions.

    yeah! partition magic can merge partition with all the data intact. i have recently merge two partitions in to one, and all the files and the folder in one partions are saved in a new floder in the other partion with they merge in to one.

    Just delete both partitions (if you've moved any data over to the drive, be sure to back that up on your desktop or laptop) and format the whole drive as one partition using the same method that you did before.
