  1. Hello ?
    I want to know how to create Partition.
    Currently, I have only one hard drive that is 80GB.
    I want to use "Acronis True Image Home 10.0" to create partition but whenever I click "New Disk" or "Clone Disk", it said I have only one hard drive therefore it won't work.

    Is there step by step how to create Partition ?
    I searched forum but I can't find exact how to do that.
    And I don't want to create Partition if it need format everything.

    try to resize the first or only partition(make it smaller)
    this will give you free space you need for 2nd partition

    Could you explain how to do that ?
    And I read some topic in forum: Some people create 6 or more partitions and they create game partition, window partition, program partition, and so on.

    I want to know how others manage their partitions
    I need many reply from members in techspot and more.

    Thank you for those who reply my question.
    By the way, I am used almost 50GB. What if I am going to make partition, what will happened the stored files ? Will they safe or deleted if I am using Partition magic or Acronis partition manager ?
