  1. How to partition the C-disk?


    The 950 GB C-disk on my Windows 11 laptop has about 860 GB of free space. I would like to partition that to create a second partition of about 300 GB. I found several websites that provide steps for doing this involving the Shrink feature of the Disk Management app. But when I right-click the C-disk above and select "Shrink volume...", it says that the maximum partition that I can create is only 216 MB. The Defrag tool says the C-disk does not need defragmenting.How can I create a 300 GB partition?Thanks

    :)

    W7 Hard drive partition issue

    to get rid of that 100 meg windows partition that setup creates for you on a new install on a blank hdd:

    - press shift+f10 when on the partition management screen in setup <-- this opens a command prompt
    - diskpart <-- start the windows command line partition management tool
    - list disk <--- list the installed hdds in this computer for the next step
    - select disk 0 <- might have to replace 0 with the number of the correct disk
    - clean <-- this will erase all data on the disk you selected one step up- dont use the wrong disk!
    - create partition primary <- creates a primary partition taking up all space on the drive, adjust the command if necessary
    - exit, exit to exit diskpart and the command prompt
    - click refresh in partition manager and select your newly created partition and install to that

  3. Disk management console view is not up-to-date

    i dont know how to fix your disk management, but i can fix your partition problems...




    open up Command Prompt with admin rights. (Right click, run as admin)


    enter in
    DISKPART
    list disk

    then find the Disk number for your Raid array... lets call it number 7 ( you can tell what disk is what by the total size)
    type in

    Select Disk 7
    List Partition (will give you a list of all the partitions..)
    Select Partition 1 (im assuming you only have 1 partition on Disk 7) repeat this step if you have more partitions.
    ASSIGN


    that should get the array up and running ready to use.


    EDITED.

    any problems, post back ^^

  4. How to partition the C-disk?

    how to add a portion of disk into another hard disk partition in windows 10?

    Hi Hamiul,

    I realize the inconvenience you are facing. Let me help you in resolving the issue.

    I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if that helps.

    • Run Disk Management. Open Run Command (Windows button +R) a dialog box will open and type "diskmgmt.msc".
    • In the Disk Management screen, just right-click on the partition that you want to shrink, and select “Extend Volume” from the menu
    • Locate your system partition — that’s probably the C: partition. Right-click on it and select “Shrink Volume.” If you have multiple partitions on your hard drive, you could also choose to resize a different partition to free up space.

    Hope the information helps. Please let us know if the issue persist and we will be happy to assist you further.

    Thank you.
