Since the last post I used gparted to delete the Windows 7 partiton. Of course the boot sector was on that partition so I had to restore the boot sector and the computer is operating as before. Now I'd like to merge everything into one partition, just the C: drive. So, I assume I have to move two partitions forward so that the disk looks like C:, then the other two partitions. I think, using gparted, my next moves are:
1. move the two partitions forward
2. merge the two moved partitions
3. Merge the new merged partition into the C: partition

I've never done this before so any advice or methodology will be appreciated. Do I have to format the unallocated space before the moves?
