Is there a free (and easy to use) partition software that someone can recommend? I understand that it is possible to create a partition of my C drive. I'd like to store my document, picture and music files there. This is supposed to give me more space and make my hard drive run faster, if I understand it correctly.

Thanks very much.

I'm afraid that you've been mislead a bit there. The only reason to have a secondary partition on a harddrive these days is to try to avoid any cluttery on the system drive and store other data seperately. It won't give you more space, because the physical drive can only store so much, no matter how many partitions you have. And the speed of the system won't be increased that much either, unless it's slowed down to a crawl by now.

The best thing to do for starters is to do the following:

Either buy or borrow a secondary harddrive, to back up your important data, because you don't want to lose it while you mess about with the harddrive.
When that's done, report back and I'll talk you through how to do this from within Windows and without having to mess with third party software.

Good luck Smiley
