Ow... that stung a little . BTW I use Windows 7's manager for all my partitioning needs.
Coolio, there are many reasons we use a 3rd party Disk manager such as to Resize anything to the left, copy, mark active, convert to logical/primary, etc.

We solve many of these problems here every day and couldn't help half of them without the use of a good partition manager like Partition Wizard bootable CD which is preferred because it's free and can be used with 64 or 32 bit.

That said, I prefer Disk Management for simple shrinking since it never fails, while 3rd party partition managers can and do fail during resizing.

The last primary partition I right click them it only show "help"
The "Extended" partition will take the place of the fourth "Primary" partition. Then inside the "Extended" partition you can create many "Logical" partitions.

To do this safely, You will need to delete one "Primary" partition, so you will want to backup any data you want to save so you don't loose it. Then delete one "Primary" partition and create the "Extended" partition with the "Logical" drive for your saved data. Add other "Logical" Partitions as needed.

Cheers!

Partitioning WIN 7 computer with XP and large HD

I have Win 7 and XP installed on a new computer with a terabyte hard drive. Can someone recommend a web site or a book with suggestions on how to handle this space?

I'm a writer and use the system for word processing mainly. On my old system I used the old DOS subst command for fast access to my book directories.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Acronis DDS 10 is not compatible with W7. They say that they are working on a new version, but how long before release...who know?

EDIT: It was said that it will work, if booting from the DDS disk, but I have not tried it.
