In order to manage data or files better, we can create new partitions on hard drive to store them. How to create new partition? This problem stumped many computer green hands, included me. Finally, I found two relatively convenient ways to create new partition.
Right-click "my computer", choose the "manage" option, access the computer management interface, choose the "disk management" option on the left side, to ensure unallocated space appears in the Disk. Then, it is available to create new partition after right-click and choose the "new partition" option on this disk. (If there is not any unallocated space, try to shrink or resize the drive to make an unallocated space via using free Partition Assistant Standard Edition.)
Finish the operation above, then, follow the New Partition Wizard to finish the remaining operations. The New Partition Wizard will ask you to specify the following:
Open Partition Assistant (Freeware), select the "Partition Management", and choose the unallocated space and right-click on it, then choose the "Create" option in the drop-down menu.
Then, the partition assistant will remind you to configure the size and the location for the new partition. Include "partition label", "drive letter", "create as…" and "file system". You can choose as your request. Then click "ok" to return the main interface. You need to click "Apply" button on the toolbar to take effect the operation.
Both ways create new partition are no problem. The difference is, the later method can support to create any FAT32 partition more than 2TB in size, but the former one supports up to 32GB only. Besides, Partition Assistant has more features to manage disk partition such as extend system partition, repartition etc. It can work on Windows XP/2000/Visat/Windows 7/Windows 8 and Server 2003/2008. The free edition supports 32 bit and 64-bit non-server windows systems. Click here to download the Free Partition Manager.
