I need to partition this 320G hard drive and i am looking for suitable sofware (easy to use) that is capable of partitioning large drives. I did look at partition magic ;but this is only suiable for drives up to 300G.
My PC is running vista premium 2gig mem and an internal 250gig hard drive.
your advice on suitable software to acheive this w2ould be appreciated.
See if this helps then, sinbads. click here It seems to me that if you can see the drive in diskmanagement you should be able to partition it using that method. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful, but I'm severely hampered by not having Vista yet.
MAJ Thanks for that info if i right click on the blue area on c drive there is an option to shrink, however the external drive ias a single partition that takes up the whole drive so i need a third party software to do this.The drive is empty at the moment, can't understand why they preformatted using fat32?
So there's no option to shrink the partition on the external drive in disk management, sinbads? That's a pity, sounds like something MS should have incorporated. Don't know why the disk was formatted already, but if that's the manufacturer's idea of saving time it's probably formatted as FAT32 so that users of older OS's can view the partition, seeing as it's so easy to convert to NTFS.
