How to merge partitions under Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit)?

Why we need to merge Windows 7 partitions?

If you have a partitioned hard disk and one of the partitions is running out of space, you can choose to merge partitions for larger drive space.And you can also choose to merge partitions for more free drive space under any other situations like:

"I installed windows 7 and I don't know what I did wrong, but this is what I end up with: C: 1.66 GB free of 9.44GB, where as I have total of 80 GB hard drive. And then I have drive "E" which has 64 GB free drive space. So how can I merge the partitions?" "I have partitions C and D. My problem is that C is smaller than D. How can I move some space to C from D or merge these partitions?" etc. No matter what is the reason, if you want to merge windows 7 partitions, you can achieve the goal by using EaseUS Partition Master.
