    Resize NTSF partition w/ PartitionMagic

    I have installed XP on an new 120GB HD.

    I now want to add an extended partition and then some partitions in there.

    I used NTFS for the XP.

    Now when I go into PM, I can't add an extended partition.

    The C: partition is taking the whole drive space and I can't resize.

    I did this before with a 30GB but used FAT32.

    Any ideas?

    You'll need to resize the partition before you can create a new one. Once you resize C: to a smaller size, youll have unallocated space from which you can choose to create new partitions.

    If you're having trouble with resizing NTFS partitions, try searching the forums for "1513". There's a patch you might need to install .

    I bought Partition Magic 8 and formated in NTFS and all is well.

    Thanks for the post.
