First before I provide an update I have to ask how did you know I am living in KS (aka the land of Dorothy and Toto)? You will note I did not say I am from here just living here. Now for the update: I got to the point where you right click on unallocated space on the hard disk (aka hard drive?) and it states to then click on New Simple Volume - there was not that option in the drop menu. To clarify this is an external hard drive. gracias por todo su ayuda.
my reply to the folks I was dealing with did not go through. Lets see what happens here!
I just wanted to let you know the outcome of my experience. By george you did it! I really appreciate very much your responses and your willingness to let me ask my questions. Depending was what facet of interaction with computers I can be rated minimal to moderate. I look at it as an ongoing learning experience. Your last email especially illuminating. Hopefully your experience dealing with my questions can be applied to other situations, making it easier, better for others.
By listening you indeed did help. I had also been in touch with a partitioning program and after a lot of emails being exchanged an explanation for all aspects of operating the program was finally exchanged. It is to my present and probable future benefit that I found this site and am very thankful for that. I am from SC but grew up some in Texas, going to school at TAMU. I took Spanish in high school and college. Entonces yo puedo hablar en espanol mas o menos.
