Hi. looked for a min but didn't see anything on this i took the old 120gb hdd out of the wife's busted machine hooked it up in my newer machine and its only showing 62.5gb available in properties i have formatted it but still only shows 62.5 any ideas?

Ok i removed the drive and my d; went as well telling me my other 40gb drive wasn't connected and the 120gb drive is split into 2 drives adding up to 111.7gb . My question now is. How can i combine the 2 parts of the hdd?

Yes, if you don't need any data on it just unallocate the partitions and re-partition into one full primary partition. If you do need the data, unallocate the unused partition and then expand the used partition into that space in disk management.
