Question [Mac OSX Sierra] Cannot Remove or Enlarge First Partition

Is there a way to enlarge or remove the first partition "SPARE" on my HD? I'd like to merge it with my OS partition and DiskUtil (whether in OS or Recovery Mode) doesn't allow me to delete it. I thought I could enlarge it, then use CCC to copy the OS to the currently empty partition, then delete the old one, but again, I don't seem to be able to enlarge the "SPARE" partition.

Is there any way you guys can think of doing this that doesn't require an external HD? Thank you so much in advance! :giggle:

You should be able to delete it from the listing of the drives (after a back up) on the left in the tree. It's important to choose all devices in the tree on the left not just volumes. Would ensure a full back up prior to moving or deleting anything.
