Readingthis post I got scared @#$%$%$#. Eventhough I am as carefull as a debutante on her first dance you never know. Would it be possible to divide my C:/ disk divide in 3 partitions without formatting it?

Partition 1 OS
Partition 2 Program Files
Partition 3 Others

You can do it successfully but it's a risk - so backup before trying it.

Use a program like Partition Magic or Acronis Disk Director. In my experience, only do one thing at a time. If you do more than 1 at a time, the likelyhood of corruption increases.

So, first, resize your OS partition down the the size that you need - then apply the change and then reboot.

Then create the new partitions in the newly freed space - then apply and reboot.

Then format the partitions and you're done!
