Can I ask why you want to partition in the first place?
Partitioning your drive isn't going to give you more space on your C: drive, quite the opposite, you'll need to shrink your existing partition to make room for the new one. Neither will a new partition necessarily give you a "back up" of your data, because although it's true if you have to reformat your C: drive the other partition will be kept safe, if you have a hard drive failure you can still lose all of your data no matter where it's partitioned.
Backing up your data means saving it to two places, preferably in different storage locations.

The amount of data files on your computer isn't going to slow down your OS, unless you've filled up the hard drive to the point where the data files are taking up the room that the virtual memory file would occupy, causing disk thrashing. And by filled up I mean you're getting Windows alerts that you need to free up room on your drive. If that's the case, repartitioning won't help you at all, because even if you divide your hard drive into two portions you're still going to have just as much data taking up the space.
Absolutely, I want to partition because I need to store my music in another location. I've been told that the mass amounts of data I'm storing is slowing down my system. So my only alternative is to partition what I have or Buy more RAM and HD... Is this wrong? There is nothing wrong with my comp. at this point, just slow and it's HEALTHY!!
