I want to merge these 2 partition in purple. (See picture link)
But I will have to merge them with the 2 in red. It's on a laptop and I wonder if it will cause a problem.
It's windows 10. I first installed it on a HDD. But I cloned it to a SSD and I ended with unallocated space. that I changed to G: extra.
Thanks

- Back up your drive : make a full back up image of your system (or better clone it to a spare drive and test the merging on the cloned drive)
- Do the merging ( the NT 800 MB partition shouldn't be another windows system partition: are you able to see that partition when you boot into windows 10 or is it hidden, what files are on it?)
- Test boot.

Could you load Windows disk management utility screen shot on that disk with list of the disk in the upper half window with their names and the actual disk on the bottom half window.
Meanwhile I wouldn't advise messing with any of the windows 10 special partitions (either reserved or recovery one), but you could definitely do some experimentation on a spare cloned drive.
Is Recovery partition the same as System Reserved?

Recovery Partition is the part of the drive to reset the machine back to how it was when you bought it. Windows creates a System Reserved partition when you install it on a clean disk. Windows doesn’t assign a drive letter to these partitions, so you’ll only see them when you use Disk Management or similar utility. The System Reserved partition consumes 350 MB of space on Windows 10, it would not be advisable deleting it.
