Disk Partioning Help

  RobCharles1981 14:50 06 Aug 2009

I've just installed a 1TB Samsung Spinpoint Sata Hard Drive and I've installed Windows on that Drive.

What I want to do is to create a another partition on That Drive Into ie Windows On One And Backup Data On The Other.

I had a look in Disk Manager but nothing seems to be shouting out.

Is there some good software that can do this for me please?

partition magic is the best software around for this, or paragon which is sometimes free on the front of pc mags, but not a fan of it. however if your drive fails, the back up drive will fail with it, twin partitions are only of use for corrupt installations by virus or drivers. i would go for a second separate drive myself.

I normally use Acronis Disk Director but I've also used Paragon Partition Manager from a magazine freebie successfully. I think this is free click here

Hi Will the Paragon Manager work on 64 Version of Windows?

I haven't tried it but there is a link for a 64 bit version for Vista only.

Sorry misread it, no there isn't a free version.
