How to merge partitions easily and safely in Windows 7?

Users sometimes have the misunderstanding of Windows 7 that it is possible to merge partition with the newly-added "extend partition" function of the disk management tool. Merge partition and extend partition are totally two different kinds of partition management operations. Merge partition is to combine two partitions together and the most important is the data will not be affected after merging. But using the disk management tool to extend partition, the user needs to delete one partition to make it unallocated space to extend the other partition. The data security is not guaranteed during this process. Is there any third-party partition magic that can merge partition and at the same time guarantee the security of data for Windows 7?
