So you want to regain that (103MB) of unallocated space. The only partition from within windows that would be able to regain that space is the recovery partition.*

Unless you use a 3rd program like Partition Wizard.

You also have to make sure that the space is unallocated - not only available.

Hello Mjsalehi, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Could you post a screenshot of your Disk Management (diskmgmt.msc) showing all drive layouts? This will give us a better idea of what you will be able to do with it.

You will be able to use this tutorial to shrink your C: drive by how much you want to use for the other partitions as unallocated space. Afterwards, you can create a logical (light blue) partition from the unallocated space, then repeat the process on each logical partition to shrink and create a new one for how many logical partitions you want. If you get asked to convert the drive to a dynamic disk, then DO NOT DO SO. It will make your Windows 7 unbootable.

However, considering that you only have 451GB on your C drive, you might consider getting a new hard drive and split that up into how many partitions you want on it instead. This way it can be a good backup drive as well.

Hope this helps,
