Can't partition

  [email protected] 14:25 12 Apr 2004

I am using partition magic 8 to create another partition on my harddrive. I have done it before so I know how to do it, but for some reason it won't do it now. After rebooting a blue screen says partition magic tasks are complete but nothing has changed. Why is this? My hdd is 120gb and my o/s is Xp Pro.

You have to make one of the other partitions smaller to create a new drive from the free space it leaves you cannot just create a new partition if all the drive space is allocated to other partitions

Thanks pj123 but that seems well complicated!

Thanks woodchip but i followed the wizard but nothing happened.

You have to click and drag one of the drive sliders to make it smaller so it creates free space on the drive first
