Please post back a screenshot of your maxmimzed full Disk Mgmt drive map with listings, using Snipping Tool in Start Menu, and update your System Specs in bottom left corner of your post.

How much RAM are you using with 32 bit?

Download and install Partition Wizard Home Edition v5.2. It is free, and it works wonderfully under Win7.

Also download and burn their ISO image for their standalone bootable CD, for performing functions on your hard drives that cannot be performed while booted to the OS.

Now you can do whatever you want with partitioning your hard drives. Partition Wizard is intuitive and easy to use, but if you have questions ask further here.

Anyway, you could probably use Run -> DISKMGMT.MSC under Windows, to use the OS's disk management functionality to accomplish this as well.

But I suggest you use the truly easy-to-use, intuitive, graphically appealing, and 100% reliable and free Partition Wizard product... and forget about DISKMGMT.MSC.

And besides, PW can do a number of things that DISKMGMT.MSC simply cannot do.

If you run PW under Win7 rather than from the standablone bootable CD, when you push the APPLY button you may or may not be told that need to restart to complete the task... in which case it will kick in at pre-boot time to finish whatever needs to be done, and then will continue on with the normal boot process. When you are back in Windows you will have all the work to your hard drive that you'd previously specified now fully completed.

But using the standalone boot CD is probably the most straightforward and understandable approach when C is involved, and which cannot be completed while actually booted to the OS. You just won't see the expected Windows-assigned drive letters for your partitions when using the standalone boot CD, which you WILL see when running the program under Windows itself. But otherwise, it looks just like the program when it's running under Win7 for real.
