    When I re-built my system, stupid me, I forgot to delete the first partition in which my previous Windows XP Home had been installed. I installed Windows XP Pro onto the wrong partition with only 4.45gb of space. My D:, on the other hand, is now a MassStorage device, and has over 150gb of free space. Is there any way at all of combining the two into one drive? Or am I screwed and stuck with repartitioning my system?

    Any ideas would be much appreciated.

    You will need a third party app like acronis disk director or partition magic to resize a system partition.

    FWIW I would save money and just reinstall.

    That's the only other option, eh? /sigh

    Guess I'll just have to reinstall the damn thing. Thanks anyway.

    There are some free partition managers however I have never used them so I cannot recommend one. I use and recommend acronis disk director for partition work. Another good one is paragon disk manager however neither of those are free.

    It is kind of up to you. If you have a lot of stuff already installed, it might be worth it to buy a partition app. If you just have the os installed, I would just reinstall.
