TIME FOR MERGING 2 PARTITIONS, CONCERNED
I am using DD 12.5, Windows 10 on an ASUS Laptop with a 1Tb SSD drive (Data)(3 partitions) and a 500Gb M2 C: drive (OS).
My 1Tb drive has 3 partitions (left to right) DATA, software BACKUPS and a formated NTFS space. From with in DD12.5, I am merging the BACKUP (160Gb) and Formated NFTS (100Gb).
The plan is to merge the DATA and NFTS partitions, and then to resize them down to 60Gb, and increase the DATA partition, by 100Gb.
Erything went great the initial process in DD12.5, everything hit 100%, now the wheel on my ASUS LOGO START PAGE has been spinning for 2+ hours.
The question I have is this is this normal, and how long should the process take to MERGE the 160 and 100Gb SSD partitions?
Thanks in advance for assisting this Newbie questions!
