    Get a program like Partition Magic, which can shrink your current partition, and then create a new storage partition in the left-over space.
    It's just as easy though, to buy a second hard disk instead.

    New hard drives are much less costly than good partitioning software, and make more sense, because they offer more security. Otherwise, you will need Partition Magic 8, Acronis, System Commander, etc. Acronis is very good. Partition Magic support only lasts a short time.
