    I have 2 partitions , 1 is 6.93GB and got 2 GB free space. Another is 2.6gb partition with 2.6gb free. when i want to increase the 1st partition size to include the free 2.6gb partition , it doesnt increase the size, it shows the same size. If the 2nd partition is even smaller, it will prompt error that not enough space on that selected partition. How to get the 2.6gb into the 6.93gb partition and make it to around 8gb drive ?Pls advise. Thanks

    Regards
    Daniel

    Hello Daniel,

    Actually, Acronis Partition Expert 2003 is the old version of Acronis Disk Director Suite 10.0 and it is no longer developed by our Development Team. That is why we cannot produce updates for this software any more and that is why you are not able to find it in the list.

    However, if the issue was not caused by the software then we will do our best in order to help you in resolving it. As I have mentioned above, you can send us the requested diagnostic information either by submitting a pre-sales question which does not require a serial number or by sending the letter directly to support@acronis.com.

    Thank you.

    Hi, i have send a mail to the support team. I'm not sure whether it is by design or issue with the software. Just can't get that partition to merge or increase the partition space . FYI both partitions are logical partitions.

    Regards
    Daniel
