    Steps to merge two partition in Mac?

    I have clear idea of merging two partitions in PC but in Mac I never tried before and itís really a sensitive thing to do because if we do some mistake all data will be gone. So I want to be sure with the right steps to go ahead in this? So can you please provide me the information? Thank you.

    Steps to add the partition:-

    -> Launch the
    disk utility.

    -> Then you see the disk partition.

    -> Now select the drive that you want to add the drive.

    -> Once you select the drive then tap the right click and press the merge.

    -> This will ask the drive for adding into selected drive.

    -> So select and merge.
