Solved How to combine HD with Recovery Image partition Tags: Hard Drives Data Recovery Hewlett Packard HD Storage Last response: August 6, 2012 3:34 AM in Storage Share queesy August 6, 2012 1:45:57 AM My friend gave me his 500GB Samsung 7200 RPM HD that came from his HP Computer (his HP broke down and he had no use for the HD). I am running the HD in conjunction with my Kingston HyperX 120GB SSD. When I plugged the HD into my system, the Samsung HD has two partitions. The extra one is the HP factory image. I formatted both partitions and both are now completely empty. How can I combine the two partitions into one drive? Both the partitions are on the same HD. Thank you.
