Windows 7: Partitions

Hi Rob,

Yes from the operating system point of view (inside Win7) you would see a C: drive with your system files and another drive, (assume D:), which to start with would be empty

I forgot to mention that in order to use the D: drive you will need to format the new drive after creation, The option will be presented in the drive management application.

Also when you actually create the new partition you will be asked to select the type of drive you want - as you are only having a total of two the easiest is a primary.

The only advice I would give is to take your time and if you're not sure of anything either try the built in help on the Drive management app or post back here with specifics :)

Ok that all makes a little more sense to me now.
