Viliv X70 – Partition and Parts told you that Viliv has divided my 128GB SSD into three partitions: 31.25 GB (FAT32) for the C drive, 83GB (NTFS) for the D drive, and 5GB for a hidden recovery partition.
To my (probably incorrect) way of thinking, dividing up a 128GB SSD so the C drive was only 32GB active partition defeated the purpose of obtaining a large (and expensive) 128GB SSD. So I wanted to combine the C and D drive into one, large C drive. However, I wanted to leave the 5GB hidden recovery partition alone since it is my failsafe (I hope).
I used Acronis Disk Director since I already own it and am comfortable using it. There are of course other (and free) alternatives.
The operation was lengthy but smooth. In the famous words of our 43rd President, mission accomplished! The C drive is now 114GB. There still is a D drive, but only about 15MB.
Now for the next step (gulp) … changing the OS from XP Home to XP Tablet PC. It sure would be easier if I had access to Windows 7 RTM. But I don’t. Instead, I have to wait for Windows 7 when it is released (at retail) to the huddled masses yearning to breathe free (of Vista).
