Windows 7: how to create a logical drive from an unallocated partition?

13 Feb 2011   #11

Windows Home Premium 64bit

Hi Bare Foot Kid,

Thanks for your help, I have successfully named and formatted the unallocated volume on my hard disk ( see attach). Mini Tools Partition Wizard is indeed a really useful program and everyone should have a copy handy. Its much easier to use than Windows 7 Disk Management.

Although I brunt an ISO version of the PW, I didn't have to use it. I simply downloaded PW on to my Hard Disk and ran it form there.

Thank you again.

Hello again.

That's exactly what you wanted, well done and thanks for the update.

Yes Partition Wizard has an excellent UI and does stuff disk management will not do.
