How to move/merge multiple recovery partitions? (they are non-continuous)

I want to resize my local disk but my windows recovery partition is in between my C drive and my local disk. I also have a second recovery partition. I think a windows update is the reason for two recovery partitions.

This is my current disk partition^^^^


I ran reagentc /info and found out that windows is using Partition 4 as a recovery partition. I'm really new to this and I'm afraid of making a rash decision and messing my windows. I'm sceptical about deleting the old partition (ie partition 6) so, I thought I could delete my E drive and then move recovery partition 4 to the end.

So I have some questions regarding this and it would be really great if someone helped me out...
Should I just proceed like the second picture?
  1. Will moving the disk partition 4 mess up the windows recovery configurations?
  2. Is it a good idea to merge the two recovery partitions after moving it?
  3. Is there any other possible solution?
  4. Is there any good tool to conduct such changes safely?
    Thanks in advance :)

But I want to increase the size of my E drive. So I thought I could move my recovery partitions like the second picture. Is there any other solution you'd suggest?

Question for both: Why do you have unallocated partitions? You can't use them in that state. Allocate and either merge or assign a drive letter to them.
