Hello viiicky, welcome to Seven Forums!


Here's what to do, first in Windows 7 disk management right click that green "Free Space" and click delete, that should make it all "Unallocated Space".


Then using this method to open a command window and type the following commands ...

diskpart

select disk 0

create partition primary

exit

exit - to close the command window
Then use Windows disk management to format the newly created partition.

That should be all there is to create a 4th (fourth) Primary partition for use and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

thnx...thnx a lot...
it worked
only deleting that free space and then simply creating new partition by right click on the unallocated space has solved the problem
thnx a lot I m too glad that I got my 70gb back without rebooting my entire system

Hello again.


I'm pleased you got it sorted and if you're happy with an Extended partition instead of a Primary partition then I'm happy too, thanks for the update.

It is possible to break that Extended partition into many Logical drives, have a look at Method One #2 of this tutorial linked below to see the process and be sure to post back with any further questions.
