Did you download the Windows version of Partition Wizard?

Or the version mentioned in Greg's post #220?

You must highlight the partition you want to resize, in this case C. Rightclick C, select Resize, in the small window that opens up grab the right border and slide it to the left to where you want it, or type into the box the exact size in MB I gave you, click OK. If it looks correct, then Apply the step.

I would use the boot disk since Win7 apparently has files blocking resizing, although you can try it from the Windows version first. There also is a slight chance of resize failing in the Windows version, which is why it's recommended to use the boot disk. So have your data backed up if you use the Windows version.

Disk cleanup and defragmentor will not change the size of a drive.

Have you read this ? PW is a piece of cake to use.

ok, i checked it out... it seems quite easy but how do i make another partition (as in another drive eg, drive F, which i once had) and move the space to it from drive C ?

Are you using disk management or Partition Wizard ?

Either way you just right click on the empty space to create a new volume.
