Creating Partitions

This topic describes how to create partitions.


  • If you reduce the volume of the C: drive partition, you may not create Recovery Media or complete the recovery process successfully because the free space on the built-in storage device is not sufficient.

  1. Open Control Panel, select System and Security, and select Create and format hard disk partitions under Administrative Tools. (See Opening Control Panel to open Control Panel.)

    If the User Account Control window appears, select Yes.

  2. Right-click the C: drive and select Shrink Volume.
  3. Enter the size of the partition to be created in Enter the amount of space to shrink in MB and select Shrink.
  4. Right-click Unallocated and select New Simple Volume.
  5. Follow the on-screen instructions.
