I have a new 320gig SATA drive on the way for my laptop. It's factory new so I assume it will be unallocated space with no file system.
What I would like to do is get 3 drives of approx 100gb each out of it.
During installation I understand I can choose "advanced disk options" and choose a new drive using all of my 320gb (about 298gb formatted) and format it as NTFS.
Can I then shrink / extend this 298gb drive to become 100gb, and then create a new drive in the extended 198gb section? Can I then format this as NTFS, and repeat the same step again to create a third drive?
Is this the best way to achieve my goal of 3 suable 100gb drives with C being the OS drive. I am not hung up about the hidden 100mb system bitlocker drive thats created, thats fine.
Any advice rgeatly appreciated. thanks so much.
