On my DUAL BOOTING desktop I have Windows 8.1 and Windows 8 on 2 partitions and one other partition with some Backup data and there is also a small 100 MB system reserved partition.

 

I want to remove the old Windows 8 partition along with its contents altogether and append the resulting space to the Back up partition.

 

How can go about this operation?

 

Thank you.

Hi Bobang :)

I can help you doing that, however I need to know how your partitions looks like now. I'll need you to give me a screenshot of your Windows Disk Management utility, alright? Please follow the instructions below.

Follow the instructions below to open the Disk Management Utility:
  • For Windows 7, click on the Windows Start Menu, right-click on Computer and select Manage (requires Admin Rights). From there, click on Disk Management in the left pane;
  • For Windows 8, bring the cursor in the bottom left-corner of the screen and wait for the metro preview to open, then right-click on it and select Disk Management;
  • For Windows 8,1 bring the cursor on the Windows logo, right-click on it and select Disk Management;
  • Open the window to its full size, then take a screenshot of it and attach it to your next reply;

You want to remove the Windows 8 partition right? Simply right-click on the rectangle that have Win 8 (K:) in it and select Delete. From there, it'll become unallocated space. You can right-click on the Win 8.1 (C:) partition after and select Expand ... and give it all the unallocated space to it's right :) Let me know how it goes.
