    You can use Vista/Windows 7 Disk Management, if you one partition doesn't contain data.
    Use Disk Management and delete that blank partition and extend the appropriate partition.

    Remember: Partitions must be resided in the disk as Primary partitions or Logical partitions.

    Yes, use Vista Disk management utility. But do note that you can not merge partitions in Vista with this Utility. If your 2nd partition is empty, you can delete the 2nd partition and then extend the 1st partition, to use the freed up space. Also note that you can extend only to the right; if you are desirous of extending the partition to the left, you may have to use a 3rd party utility, like Acronis.

    Details How To Resize, Extend, Shrink, Delete, Merge Partitions In Vista.

    it is not good to trust on 3rd parties software for disk management functions, it may lead to cause you data loss....use vista's inbuilt utility, it is good enough to handle all important tasks.....

    Hey lapwlover,
    It seems you forget to leave your link?
    Anyway, I recommend partition master home edition. It's free! Check download.cnet.com or partition-tool.com and you can download it.
