Hello Alfares, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It's the same procedure for a SSD as it is for a HDD. However, please post a screenshot of your Disk Management window first to see what you drive layout is. This will let us know what your options are.

You would be able to easily shrink the C: drive by what you like to be able to create a new partition on the SSD using Option One in the tutorial.

You already have 4 primary partitions, which is the limit. Your options are:
1. replace volume E: with an extended partition, including the unallocated space (You could then create two logical volumes within that extended partition.), or
2. increase the size of (extend) volume E: to include the unallocated space.

As always, backup the data on volume E: before attempting either option.

As with the advice above I would backup before any partition operation. I would also make a system image. Disk Manager will tell you how much you can shrink C:
My opinion:
Don't shrink your OS partition much if any.

Hi, I wanted to have a partition, but instead of primary, I got logical partition. I only have 2 primary and 1 recovery partition. Can I get the 3rd primary instead of logical?

Thanks.

Hello R3QuI3M, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Since you already have 3 primary partitions, the 4th and following ones will be logical partitions. You will be fine with it as a logical partition though.
