Merging partitions

I'm trying to merge partitions with PartitionMagic 8.0. These two partitions are on an old Seagate HD which is about 12GB in size. The partition I'm trying to merge is empty. Both partitions are NTFS. Seems like all is going well but somewhere near the end of the merging operation I get the following error:

Error #4
Bad argument/parameter

At PowerQuest site there's some help about this error but it doesn't seem to concern my situation. I've checked the disk and there are no errors.. any ideas how I could get the disk merged to one?

try deleting the empty partition, and just resizing the other one so that it uses the empty space.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
