    Vista Partitioning - Creating a new Volume

    Hello, I need some help with creating a partition from within my unallocated
    region. I first successfully shrunk my “C” drive, and then followed these
    steps:
    1/ Then right-clicked an unallocated region on your hard disk, which is
    43.96 GB, and then click New Simple Volume.
    2/ In the New Simple Volume Wizard, I clicked Next.
    3/ In Specify Volume Size I have a Max disk space of 45,019 MB – I specified
    5,000 MB in Simple volume size.
    4/ I accepted the letter drive “F”.
    5/ In Format Partition I accepted “Format this volume with the following
    settings” of - File system: NTFS, Allocation unit size: Default, and Volume
    label: New Volume.
    6/ The next window of: “Completing the New Simple Volume Wizard” states “You
    have successfully completed the New Simple Volume Wizard.”
    7/ I click “Finish” and a Dish Management window opens and states: “There is
    not enough space available on the disk(s) to complete this operation.
    What am I doing wrong?
    Thanks

    Assuming no other partitions on the drive other than C:

    Accept the default 45,019 MB and create the partition.
    Then, resize the partition to 5,000 MB.

    (You should not have to do it this way.)
    Are you sure that C: resized? Or, is it simply in a queue to be resized?

    Do you already have 4 partitions on the disk? (So 3 besides C:?)

    RE: Vista Partitioning - Creating a new Volume

    I accepted the default of 43.96 GB and remaining defaults and still get the
    window “There is not enough space available on the disk(s) to complete this
    operation."

    Jill, I don't know what this means, but I have the following five sections in
    Disk 0:
    1/ 55 MB Healthy (EISA Configuration)
    2/ Recovery (D:) 10.00 GB NTFS Healthy (Primary Partition)
    3/ OS (C:) 55.77 GB NTFS Healthy (System, Boot, Page File, Active, Crash
    Dump, Primary Partition)
    4/ 43.96 GB Unallocated
    5/ 2.00 GB Healthy (Primary Partition)
    All the above sections are color coded Blue indicating a Primary partition,
    except for the Unallocated section which is color coded Black confirming that
    it is unallocated.
    Thanks

    Re: Vista Partitioning - Creating a new Volume

    Windows has a limit of 4 partitions. It sounds like you have used up all of
    them. You may have some work to do, to accomplish what you want.

    What you should have done is create the 1st Active Partition (for windows).
    The 2nd partition should have been created as an "Extended Partition", using
    the remaining unallocated space on your hard-disk. On this "Extended
    Partition" you can create logical drives/partitions. Windows will label
    these D:, E:, F:, etc.

    This way you can divide up your hard-drive beyond just 4 partitions.

    Re: Vista Partitioning - Creating a new Volume

    Hi,

    I also faced the same problem. Would you please instruct us in details how to make a new volume after shrinking from C (OS)?

    Thank you.
