There are a number of free programs to partition your hard drive
Below is a link to one.

I would avoid trying to making a partition called A, B,or D

Never post your email address in an open forum unless you enjoy receiving spam. It will probably be deleted by the moderator.

It would help to know the size of the hard drive, but there are numerous free programs that will allow you to partition the drive from within Windows. I recommend Easeus Partition Master.

Windows 7 can do what you want without the use of third party utilities.

Go to Windows Disk Management. Right click the C: partition and choose to Shrink partition. Shrink it by the amount you wish to use for additional partitions. Then you will be able to work with the unallocated space to create additional partitions.

Keep in mind that Windows 7 already makes a small partition at the beginning of the disk so you can only have three additional primary partitions or two additional primary and one extended partition. You can create as many logical partitions in the extended as you have available drive letters.

I suggest that before you even start this process that you assign new drive letters to any existing drives like your optical drives, flash or memory cards. Assign them letters near the end of the alphabet, at least temporarily. Do this to make D, E, etc, available for hard drive partitions.

Read the Windows help files on this topic for further help if needed. Changing drive letters is performed in the same manner as the shrink partition procedure.

One last thing to note, if your computer came with Windows pre-installed you probably have a hidden partition that comes into play when performing partitioning. Your restore partition may no longer be available once you do this.

So, you should create the restore disks for you system BEFORE doing anything else. Verify they are functional and then you can delete that hidden partition and incorporate that space into your partitioning scheme.

Your email address is still there, use the edit function to remove it from the original post.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
