Download Partition Magic.

 

You will find a good tutorial for this program here.

Hi mloo55 :)

You could easily create two partitions using the in-built Windows Disk Management utility. Here's a good tutorial that presents you that utility and how to use it:

http://www.7tutorials.com/how-manage-your-disks-using-disk-management-utility

However, it can have some limitation. Can you tell us exactly what you want to do? Shrink the main partition (which is probably 1TB) and create another one? If so, of what size? And how many partitions are there actually on the drive?

Thanks to both for your answer, what I really want to is to separate the oiperating system from the files I create, so I think of of only two partitions, is good?

It makes sense yes. A lot of people do that and its a good practice. Alright, right click on the Windows logo in the bottom left corner and select Disk Management. From there, wait until the window is fully loaded, then take a screenshot of what you see and post it here.

How to take a screenshot using the Snipping Tool
Follow the instructions below to take a screenshot using Windows' Snipping Tool:
  • Press on the Win Key + R to open the Run box;
  • Enter SnippingTool and press on Enter;
  • The Snipping Tool will open, asking you to choose the area to take in the screenshot;
  • Left click on the area where you want to start the screenshot, keep it, and drag the cursor across the screen;
  • Once done, release the left button to take the screenshot;
  • In the editing window, click on the File menu then Save As;
  • Save the screenshot in a folder that you can access easily;
  • Once done, attach that screenshot to your next reply;

Yes, two partitions may be all you need.  C-drive partition for your OS and all programs; D-drive partition for all created and downloaded material.  I made mine equal in size, so far so good.  You may want to, program by program, designate all created, updated, materials [text, docs, pics] go to your chosen folder[s] in D-drive partition.  I left My Documents folder on C all alone.  And the BC techs here will steer you right.  :)
