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.

only deleting that free space and then simply creating new partition by right click on the unallocated space has solved the problem

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.
