    1st in the search type computer management and then right click on the computer management and select the run as administrator.

    in that window click on the disk management and

    select the unallocated space right click on it and select create a partition you can choose how much space you want a drive follow the on screen instructions.

    i think this is must works for you.

    the easiest way is, to use the default partition manager.

    go to control panel -> Administrative tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management.

    from there, select your partition, and then right click and select shrink volume. specify the size, and done! :)

    just right click on the computer icon. then select manage there you'll find the disk manager.

    if this doesn't work that means you've already made a previous partition and really need a manually made partition with a bootable cd or usb drive.

    don't worry about your files windows will create a folder just for your old files.

    hope this helps.

    You can still still partition unallocated drive by using a third party partition manager like paragon partition manager. I used this without any issues even you have a data on the drive that you want to partition.

    If u have unallocated space then it is extremely easy just
    -> right click on computer->manage->disk management
    then right click on unallocated space and look for something like 'create new partition'
