You can use a partition manager to reduce a partition and create an additional one. You had an option to not use all the drive when you reinstalled the OS.

Or, start over again and create two partitions in the setup screen.

yeah if there's not too much installed on the fresh OS installation yet, i would just re-install and use the Windows Installer partition tool to setup your partitions BEFORE installing the OS.

That being said, there've been several posts on these forums about people who made their OS partition too small, and now are running out of room. One of these posts complained about 40GB being too small.

So I might suggest you leave all 80GB as your OS, and buy an additional HDD (500GB SATA for less than 100 bucks these days) to set as your D partition.
