Hi Luke,

You can do this from your Vista installation DVD. Just do a "Custom
(advanced)" install and click "Drive options (advanced)". The "Create"
option will create a new partition and allow you to adjust it's size.

Re: Partition software
Any one you pay for would do the job most likely. Acronis Disk Director
Suite 10.0 is a fine program and is 100% Vista compatible.

Re: Partition software
Hi, Luke.

Every Windows since Windows 2000 has included Disk Management
(diskmgmt.msc), which can do almost any partitioning job that you need.
Windows XP added more functions to DM and Vista added even more.

Of course, this doesn't do you much good if you are trying to partition the
system or boot drive you are running at the moment. But if you are
dual-booting or using multiple physical drives, be sure to look at what you
already have before deciding to purchase something.

Hi Luke,

Take a look at these two tutorials for how to use Disk Management in
Vista.

To add another partition:
http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/95...partition.html

To delete a partition and extend another partition to make it bigger:
http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/95...te-extend.html


Hope these help,
Shawn
