Yes, that's what I meant. So if you altered the size to be say, 700MB, then that would create a partition 700MB, and leave 231MB as unallocated space for which you can create another partition(s).

You have more idea on how you want to structure your drives, so regard this as info rather than advice

I have just installed Macrium Reflect onto the new system and it identifies the system reserved partition of 100Mb that is automatically created by Windows, i also recognises the 146Gb partition that I created on installation C:, however there is no partition D: for the rest of the drive??

Go to Disk Management in Windows and take a screen shot of your disk/partition layout.

Post that pic in this thread so we can better see what is going on. It likely isn't a Macrium issue.

I have managed to sort it. I used disc management and created the partitionsI wanted in there, I guess this is the correct way to do it it just wasnt very clear. I eventually found it in 'windows the definitive guide'
