Can't merge partitions

  Anti_Virus 17:51 28 Jun 2007

Hi, my dell vista laptop came with my 100GB hard drive split into two partitions, one 2 GB (my D drive), the rest my C Drive. Well, the 2GB partition has now become useless to me. I could do with the 2GB storage space on my C Drive, so have tried to merge that partition's into the one C drive. So far I've been looking to do this for free. I have tried two products BootitNG (free 30-day, full functional, trial) and a program called Partition Logic. Neither have been successful. I have tried to do it by pressing the resize button on the larger partition, but both programs say the partition is at its maximum size. Even when I delete the smaller partition, so it's just a blank space in the hard drive, still the same. I can't increase the size of the larger partition. Anyone help?
