I'm perfectly happy leavfing the Recovery partition D: in place and of course the boot sector. So it is only C: that I would like to divide.
Nice tool snippit. Did not know about it.
That will be easy enough! First see how much is presently on the drive if you intend to shrink C way down to allow room. If you have 70gb on you wouldn't want to shrink it down to 80gb! Too small!

For a larger storage partition plus leaving a good amount of space on C after a good 120gb upto 200gb for C and over 200gb nearly 240gb+for the new D or E,F,G, etc second partition will work for a close to even split.

It mainly depends now on how large you want to keep C as well as the size of the new partition.
