Hyder,

you have 2 partitions already. In order to create more partitions you will need to shrink one (or both) of the current partitions to have you create some unallocated space.

Once you have unallocated space you will be able to format it, as NTFS, Quick Format and assign it a drive letter.

Windows 7 is good for disk management.

Hello,

Try this 1

1) Click on Start --> In search box type diskmgmt.msc and press "Enter".

Disk Management window will be opened.

2) Now right-click on your OS partition ( C drive ) and click on "Shrink Volume".

The Shrink Volume window will appear. Type the amount you want to shrink by

in the 'Enter the amount of disk space you want to shrink in MB' label.

For example, to shrink the partition from 35 GB to 30 GB, type 5000 in the text

box and click on "Shrink".

3)Now right click on the unallocated partition or volume and click on New

Simple Volume and follow the instructions.

Good Luck.
