Computer Management online help..

Can I repartition my hard disk?

You must be logged on as an administrator to perform these steps.

Yes. It's possible in this version of Windows to repartition your hard disk by using the Shrink feature in Disk Management. You can shrink an existing partition or volume to create unallocated disk space, from which you can create a new partition or volume. (Often, the terms partition and volume are used interchangeably.)

  1. Click to open Computer Management.Administrator permission required If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

  2. In the Navigation pane, under Storage, click Disk Management.

  3. Right-click the volume you want to shrink, and then click Shrink Volume.

  4. Follow the instructions on your screen.

Partition magic

found this forum.. also recomend to use partition magic..another tool called Gparted..this guy not success on vista partition..

some sayd this work perfectly..let download and test it out..

here is the this before got some useful print screen..

below is my real test...

select the C drive and use Resize button

create partition for unallocated space - user ntfs for better recovery instead of FAT32

now can see the new partition..

press APPLY now

after restart there will be a partition in black screen running you can see the information it did the partition as you specific just now..

but I have a problem, while running I was out for lunch, when come back see the screen of repairing window..then after a while it said cannot report..and shut down..then i press the on button it starting...then come to some point it ask for restart ..then now it is ok..

the question is not sure why there is hicup of unable to restart automatically..
