Here is what I have and once again backed out because it still won't let me click on the "K" drive. Here is another clip showing my final out come but I canceled as I still can't click on "K"? What shall I do now?

Go ahead and complete the formatting operation. That will give us like partitions to merge. This will be done after closing Paragon and restarting the machine.

How do I know when the format of D is completed as nothing seems to be happening? Can I reformat it to a NTFS by changing the Fat 32 to NTFS?

Don't worry about the K: drive for the moment. Let's get the D: formatted to NTFS. To do this, close Paragon and accept the pending operations it will warn you about when it shuts down. It will then prompt you to reboot...do so.

Once we have that formatted, you should be able to click on the K: drive again.

You're not being a pest. :whistling:

In the "Format" dialog box, select NTFS from the dropdown menu where it now says FAT32. Click "Ok" and continue on. Is this image from before or after a reboot?

Great!!!

Now we'll use the Merge Wizard.

In Paragon, click on the "Wizards" link...choose "Merge Partitions". In the Wizard, click "Next", then click on the D: partition, click "Next", then click on the K: partition. Follow the prompts from there and do the closing Paragon, accept the pendint operations, and reboot thing. You should end up with just two partitions on the drive once it restarts.

OK, here's the latest pic. I am still unable to click on "K". Now, once again I backed out to talk to you cause as you can see in the pic its just going going to give me drives "D" & "K". Does that mean C Drive will dissappear?

Select the D: partition and click "Next". It appears the K: partition is already selected. See if that gets you anywhere.

Wannabe, Here is the next latest clip. As you see it is still coming out D & K drives. Could it be cause K is a "logical" drive? We are so close, thanks to, you. Whats your next plan of action?

Here's the next clip. Here I clicked on "C" & "K". But then will I be losing my "D"? I will wait for your answer.
