PLZ help combine separate partitions Disk 0 and 1

  RickySpanish 22:32 27 May 2018

I need help figuring out how to extend the space from disk 1 (931 GB of blank unused space) to disk 0 (250 GB). I know that you can usually just extend the partitions or combine them IF they are to the right, but disk 1 is BELOW disk 0 and I cannot extend or combine them in any way. Please help..I have no more space on my main drive. I am using a gaming laptop.

Youcan't as they are on separate physical disk drives

all you can do is move data from one to the other (copy and paste and checkits there before deleting from C:

Note I said DATA (pics videos documents) not programs. Programs need to be uninstalled and custom reinstalled to the other drive.

I suggest you try moving you user folders to the big drive instructions here

before I factory reset my laptop from a system crash, my Disk 0 (C: Drive) had all the space on it and the D: drive only had 250 GBs. Now they swapped after the reset. How can I fix this and get my space back? I hate technology...

So, why not tell us what the specification of your Laptop is

  RickySpanish 01:46 28 May 2018

Windows 10 ASUS GL703VM Storage: 2 Disk Drives (GPT/Raid Controller) Disk 0: 3 Partitions-Total of 250 GB Disk 1: 1 Partition -Total of 931 GB BIOS: UEFI

Processor: Intel i7-7700HQ CPU @ 2.80GHz, 2801 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)

The GPT storage makes the partitions seem physically separate in every way. Does changing them to MBR allow me to combine them again?

Do not change to MBR on an uefi motherboard unless you change settings on the motherboard as well. I strongly suggest that you go to the manufacturer's site , MSI for example ( click here ), or whoever is the manufacturer, and ask for help on their specialised forums.

Solved. Issue was HDD type. Thanks for all help.
