MANISH SWAMI November 5, 2012

When I tried to create a new simple volume from my 146.48 GB free space, then after 4 next click and 1 finish click, I have a pop window showing this: “There is not enough space available on the disk(s) to complete this operation.”

    boot with microsoft xp cd

    go to the partitions process

    and select the empty space

    Then press c to create a partition and click enter

    after that press F3 twice boot from your HDD.

    You can have 3 primary partitions and one extended. Within that extended partition you can have as many (within reason) logical partitions as you require.
    As an example I have a 1.5TB drive with 1 primary, and 7 logical partitions.

    What you mean about simple vlolume?
    A new partition? Because people never use simple volume before.

    You might already have 4 volumes.
    Try EaseUS partition master to resize or move your existing partitions, making space for your new partition and creating a new one.

    Are you attempting to use all your drives free space for new partition? Your boot drive should have at least 10GB free space.

    Also, make sure you are reading the units correctly. Many times when formatting a drive, there will be a small amount of space that ends up being unused primarily due to the physical drive characteristics or the way space is calculated by the operating system. Winodws tends to leave small 100-200 MB chunks of free space at the end of the hard drives due to this and those partitions are too small to be formatted as NTFS partitions.

    do you have more than four primary partitions?
    hard disks configured as basic disks are limited to 4 primary partitions or 3 primary partitions and 1 extended partition and multiple logical drives.
