I have two contiguous partitions on my OWC Mercury Legacy Pro 120GB IDE/ATA SSD. The first is C: my primary boot partition, the second is shown in the disk managment window in WIN XP Pro SP3 is shown as "unallocated".

My question is how do I consolidate the unallocated partition into my Primary boot partition C: ?

XP you could use Diskpart command line to extend you C since they are two contiguous partitions. Like the following steps: Step1: Click "Start" > "Programs" > "Accessories" > "Command Prompt", type "diskpart" and press "Enter" to continue.

Step2: Type "list volume" to display the existing volumes on the disks.

Step3: Type "select volume 0". The number is the data volume that you want to extend.

Step4: Type "extend size=10240".

Then you should receive a message states that Diskpart successfully extended the volume.

Or you could use 3rd party freeware, I find a partition software which was spoken highly on PCworld:,222251-order,...
