A friend has a second hard drive and it has only one partition, (or is that no partitions?-one big partition in other words!). He wants to create a 40Gb partition, how will we go about it? In very simple lamguage if possible. Sorry if this is a 'silly' Q, but we are both novices in this area.
What AndySD has suggested or use one third party software for thi task which would mean that you don't have to delete the current structure of the drive (I would go with windows version as it is the cheapest)
Worked out exactly as he wanted, and easy too. Thanks again. What is an easy way (if there is one) of putting his operating system as a backup onto this new partition? To be able to use it to boot up if any major fault hit the main hard drive - is there a way?
We used Maxtors Maxblast3, downloaded from their site and it was easy! Took about 4 hours to do, but all seems fine. Is there a way of actually 'doing a test run' to see if this copy will boot the computer? Thanks again.
