  • Question

  • On previous sunday i bought a brand new laptop....and what i found...it had Already Vista installed and there was just 2 partition created ( c:\ -> 139 gb , d:\ -> 9.66 gb )....lot of space were wasted in c:\ .
    As Windows Vista has a nice function for ' Volume shrinking '....i have created new patition
    ( E:\ -> 40gb ) from old one ( C:\ ) without any data loss.

  •  Thanks for the useful info I recently faced a similar problem with my HP laptop and I was looking for some partitioning software as a solution because I never knew that we have a volume shrinking utility that can create a partition.

    Still I have one query is it recommended that we should fill a partition size or let it decide itself of what size of partition it should create itself.

  • Yes, this feature is wounderful, but did you find this problem? If you want to increase the system partition, you cannot expand C by shrinking D, you still have to use other tool, right?
    I have found a free partition software that can run on Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7, greate.
