I have bought 120gb ssd, and replaced main HDD with SSD. I then used factory dvds, which created all partitions needed.
I have tried OKR, but it wont work..now I would like to delete OKR from my ssd, because it has 20gb which could be used otherwise.
I want to erase that partition and merge it with C: wich has windows files on my ssd.

Try using the free EaseUs Partition Manager Home Edition. You can delete and merge partitions.
Note you will make okr non-functional with your plan.

So recovery partition is labled PBR_DRV? Whats the correct order? Should I wipe the partition and then merge it, or just merge?
Thanks for your help, I really need to do this right=)

Just delete the Recovery Partition to create Unallocated Space. Then move the Audio partition to the end so that the Unallocated Space is between the C: Windows partition and the Audio partition. Once the Unallocated Space is moved next to C: then resize the C: partition so that it uses all of the Unallocated Space.
Prior to doing any deleting or resizing, make sure you have a recovery plan in place in case something goes wrong. I would suggest imaging the entire hard drive just to be safe.

I use a retail version of Paragon, but there are a couple of free versions that are really good.
As Len recommended try Easeus Partition Manager. That can be downloaded here.......
Another program that a friend of mine uses is Macrium which can be downloaded here......
Both those programs offer the creating of an Emergency Boot Disc which will be needed to boot your system and restore the image should your partition alterations go bad. 99% of the time you can manipulate the partitions without a problem, but there is always the chance of something happening. Over the years I have played around with partition management quite a bit and finally encountered my first problem when the program froze during a resizing. Never had that happen before and it probably won't happen again for another 10 years.

This tip rendered my TPT 10 unusable, since withouth that partition the device was not able to boot anymore nor was I able to enter the system recovery.
I had to use a recovery USB drive and restore a previously pulled full system image (including all partitions)!

Simply do the below:
1- Run the command prompt CMD as administrator.
2- Type diskpart in the CMD, which will popup a new window for diskpart program
3- run the below series of commands in the diskpart window:
-> list disk (To identify the disk with the recovery partition)
Once you identify your disk (In case you have more than one disk), select it by:
-> select disk 0
-> list partition (Identify the recovery partion, usually it is labled as recovery)
-> select partition 3 (if partition 3 is the recovery partition)
-> delete partition override (Override will forcibly remove the partition since by default diskpart will refuse to run delete partition ONLY)
You are done!
