    Re: What are the steps to make partition of hard disk?

    Splitting the disk will be an advantage during re installing the Operating System. In this way you can have your OS and Applications on one Partition and Media on the other Partition.

    STEP 1: Type "Disk Management" in the Search Box of the Start Button and Click "Create and Format Disk Partitions".

    Create Empty Space on the Hard Drive:

    If it is the new Hard Drive, it does not have he Unformatted Space. If it is the New one, Skip this step.

    STEP 2: Recent Versions of Windows are able to split the unused part f the Hard Drive and to form Newer Partitions.

    Re: What are the steps to make partition of hard disk?

    Follow these simple steps after runnning FDISK command in command prompt to partition your harddrive:
    1. First, to view a list of all drives available on your system select (5).
    2. Press (4) to view partition information on the drive, then select the new hard drive.
    3. Select (1) to create a partition, then on the next screen choose (1) to create a primary partition on that drive.
    4. Select (y) if you wish to use all the space on the drive for this one partition(which we donít want to), or (n) if you wish to make more than one partition on the drive now or later. If you selected (n), enter the amount of space you wish to use for the primary partition.
    5. By selecting (n) it means that you do want to create multiple partitions, you must now make a secondary partition using the rest of the free space.
    6. Press (1) to create another partition, then (2) to create an extended DOS partition. While it gives you an option to use less than full amount of space on the disk here but any space which is not allocated now can no longer be used by FDISK unless you erase the existing partitions. So accept the default (maximum available) size for the extended partition, then press ĎESC.í This will take you to the menu for creating logical drives in the extended partition.
    7. To create a logical drive which are represented by drive C: or D: etc, simply fill in the amount of space you require the drive to have.
    After you finished performing all this procedure, Exit from FDISK, reboot to windows.

    Hello my friend...here are the steps to make partitions in hard disk...
    Step 1: Open the Start menu and type "disk management" into the search window. Click on the entry that appears labeled Create and format hard-disk partitions.

    Step 3: Right-click on the main partition of the drive and select Shrink Volume. The program will then calculate how much space it can split off. The time it takes will vary based on the capacity of the hard drive.
    Step 4: In the window that appears, enter the partition size that you want to cut away from the main segment. Note that the size is in MB, and there are 1024 MB in a GB. Click the Shrink button once the size is to your liking.
    Select and format your partition.With space cleared on your hard drive available for partitioning, you are ready to set it up for use.
    Step 5: Right-click on the empty partition, labeled Unallocated, from the bottom pane. Select New Simple Volume... from the menu that appears.
    Step 6: A wizard will appear to walk you through the formatting of the partition. It will prompt you for the desired size of the partition, allow you to set a drive letter for the partition, and select the file system . A summary of your choices will be displayed before any formatting occurs.
    Step 7: Once the format is completed, a new drive will appear for use in Windows.

    Re: What are the steps to make partition of hard disk?

    hi Dear friend

    Disk partitioning:-

    Separating one physical hard drive into multiple independent volumes..............

    Here is the way to Partition of Hard disk


    Open the Disk Management tool by selecting Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management. An

    entry for Disk Management should show up underneath the Storage heading on the left-hand side.


    click.jpg

    Click Disk Management, and you should see a list of your existing drives and partitions (if applicable). To

    create a new partition, choose a disk that has free storage space, right-click it, and select Shrink Volume. Bear

    in mind that you can safely shrink only basic disks; if you try to shrink dynamic disks that are formatted with

    the NTFS file system, you'll risk losing your data.


    Type in the amount of space you want to shrink the disk by. The number you choose depends on what you

    want to use the other partition


    185941-capture2_180.jpg
    once you've cleared the necessary space, it should show up in the Disk Management window as Unallocated

    Space. Right-click this entry, select New Simple Volume, and let the resulting wizard guide you through the

    remaiing steps of the process. Generally, you'll want to format the new partition as NTFS; and unless you're

    using this partition for archiving purposes, you won't need to enable file and folder compression for the whole

    drive.

    Thanking you

    at the starting of the system.

    ->So there you can able to seen the entire space of your harddisk so to make partition make to enter the key "enter"

    to create press "c" for the new one.


    ->And also divide the space as your requirements.


    *Another process for partitioning is to go to the my computer and right click on it so there you can able to seen the

    "manage" option.

    p2.jpg


    ->By clicking on it there you can seen some options you toclick on the "Disk management".

    ppp.jpg


    ->So on going there it can shown the disk properties and the drive of your hard disk that contained.

    p1.jpg


    ->So simply go to the drive and right click on the drive you able to seen the shrink volume go for it make enter the

    amount of space that you want to gave to each drive depending upon your hard disk.

    Re: What are the steps to make partition of hard disk?

    Hi,
    In Windows 7 this is very easy to do and takes just a few steps. Let me explain that to you.

    1) Go to the Computer option and right click on it. You may get it in the panel of Start Button or even on the desktop itself.
    2) Choose the option called manage.
    3)You see a window open in front of you. Choose the option storage from the left panel in the window itself.
    4)The moment you open storage, to the right panel comes up an option called disk management
    5)When you double click on this option, all the drives under your system is displayed. Among them choose any drive that has space for more partitions.
    6)On the selected drive right click to choose shrink volume
    7) Now as the name shrink volume suggests it will shrink certain amount of space (mentioned by you) in that drive and that amount of space will be made available to your new sub drive.
    8) After the shrinking is done you will see a new disk area created with that amount of partitioned space. Now right click on the disk space and go to New Simple Volume to make further adjustments in your new disk space and you are done.

    Re: What are the steps to make partition of hard disk?

    Dear friend,


    Just make a right click on 'My Computer' and click on 'manage'.

    Now you go to the 'Disk management'.

    There you make a right click on any one of the partition which is with high memory.

    Then click on 'Delete Logical Drive' to delete it and it will not be formatted.

    Then make a right click on the free space and click on 'Create a logical drive'.

    Then you make the drive by giving the limited amount of the space'.

    Then again create a new partition with the remaining space.

    Thanks.................

    Re: What are the steps to make partition of hard disk?

    Partition the hard disk


    Insert the Windows XP CD into your CD or DVD drive, or insert the first Windows XP Setup disk into the floppy disk drive, and then restart the computer to start the Windows XP Setup program.


    Note If you are using the Windows XP Setup disks, insert each additional disk when you are prompted, and then press ENTER to continue after you insert each disk.
    If you are prompted, select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD or DVD drive.
    If your hard disk controller requires a third-party original equipment manufacturer (OEM) driver, press F6 to specify the driver. For more information about how to use F6 to supply a third-party OEM device driver while the Windows Setup program is running, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
    314859 Limited OEM driver support is available with F6 during Windows XP Setup
    At the Welcome to Setup page, press ENTER.


    Note If you are using the Setup disks (six bootable disks), the setup prompts you to insert the Windows XP CD.
    Press F8 to accept the Windows XP Licensing Agreement.
    If an existing Windows XP installation is detected, you are prompted to repair it. To bypass the repair, press ESC.
    All existing partitions and non-partitioned spaces are listed for each physical hard disk. Use the ARROW keys to select an existing partition, or create a new partition by selecting the non-partitioned space where you want to create a new partition. You can also press C to create a new partition using non-partitioned space.


    Note If you want to create a partition where one or more partitions already exist, you must first delete the existing partition or partitions, and then create the new partition. You can press D to delete an existing partition, and then press L (or press ENTER, and then press L if it is the System partition) to confirm that you want to delete the partition. Repeat this step for each existing partition that you want to include in the new partition. When all the partitions are deleted, select the remaining non-partitioned space, and then press C to create the new partition.
    To create the partition with the maximum size, press ENTER. To specify the partition size, type the size in megabytes (MB) for the new partition, and then press ENTER.
    If you want to create additional partitions, repeat steps g. and h.
    To format the partition and install Windows XP, go to step 2.


    If you do not want to install Windows XP, press F3 two times to exit the Windows Setup program, and then do not follow the remaining steps in this article.

    Re: What are the steps to make partition of hard disk?

    Dear Friend,
    The major advantage of splitting up individual disks into multiple partitions is to soften the blow when you need to reinstall your OS. This is achieved by putting your OS and applications on one partition and your media on separate one.

    Steps :


    1. Open the Start menu and type disk management into the search window. Click on the entry that appears labeled Create and format hard disk partitions.



    2. Select the drive from the list in the bottom pane of the window.

    3. Right click on the main partition of the drive and select Shrink Volume. The program will then calculate how much space it can split off. The time it takes is based on the capacity of the hard drive.



    4. In the windows that appears, enter the partition size that you want to cut away from the main segment. Note that the size is in MB, and there are 1024 MB in a GB. Click the shrink button once the size is typed.
