Till now I always installed fresh copy of windows 7 unltimate on my machines for last few years. So I am able to do partitions. And use bitlocker to encrypt my partitions.



But my new lenovo machine (1 TB hard drive) came with windows 8.1 preinstalled with a:-


- C Drive (888 GB)

- D (Lenovo) Drive (24.9 GB)




I need to create 2 more drives. So I can encrypt them with bitlocker. I need to encrypt the sensitive business data.



How can I do this making sure the original windows 8.1 is kept and I do not need to buy a new license?




I didn't get ant DVD/CD in the package.
