Windows 7: Partition REALLY Won't Show Up

There's a Move/Resize. However, I believe that would reformat the whole C drive if I understand it correctly.

P.S. I have free disk space just not the partition and there's no room whatsoever for a partition to be created. I don't know why, there just isn't.

Partition Wizard : Use the Bootable CD

Look at the above link. It's for the bootable version, which you may or may not be using.

I would expect a move/resize command to do exactly that--move or resize.

I wouldn't expect PW to format anything unless asked to do so.

I don't want to reformat the whole drive I just want to partition a section of it for the other OS I want to boot.

I understand that.

I don't understand why you think a move/resize command would format anything.

I clearly don't know how to create a new partition with the wizard. But I do know this. I have ABSOLUTELY NO SPACE for a new partition, I just don't. I don't understand it. This is shown in the images.

Your C partition currently covers the entire drive.

You will never have space for a new partition until and unless you resize an existing partition----C.

What is hard to understand?

Did you look at the instructions in the link in post 12?

I don't understand how to resize the C drive to a smaller size.

Go to that partition move/resize menu.

What are the choices in that menu?

You need to reduce the size of C. You should be able to reduce it by circa 140 plus GB.

It's a well-designed intuitive program that you should be able to navigate with highlighting and right clicks.

Have you looked at the help file in PW?

I think I need about 50 GB of space partitioned for the second operating system. The images in post 15 are the options to move/resize. I still don't know how to resize the C drive to make it use a smaller amount.
