Windows Computer Management Console

  TN 15:11 05 Sep 2010

I have just purchased a 1TB External Hard Disk and was about to divide it into Partitions using Acronis Partition Expert. I got the message:
Cannot get access to Hard Disk Drives. Please make sure that Windows Computer Management Console is not running.
Can anyone tell me (in simple terms Please) how I manage this - I am running Windows 7 Professional.
Many thanks for any assistance.

Once again Fruit Bat many thanks Very annoyed with myself for purchasing Acronis when Windows 7 does the work!! BTW I think this is the 10th time you have been of assistance to me. Sincere thanks again
