Windows 7: Need help with disk partition (OEM Windows 7 Home Premium)

Windows 7x64 Home Premium SP1
 
 

I need to remember to always state that any partitioning operation comes with a risk (often slight). Partition Wizard was a one stop shop for this problem.
I still don't understand the need to delete anything in the process. I didn't in the test example I ran.

I never mentioned deleting anything:

Then I'd Create a new logical sub-partition in Disk Mgmt, or you can use Partition Wizard CD to Resize D to the left and adjust the size of E.

I know. I didn't attribute it to you.

But in post #24 the OP stated
"This sounds good. From what I understand, I need to delete everything from the logical drives."

All I'm saying for the sake of others is that deleting the extended partition data is an unnecessary nuisance.
