5. Disk Hacks > 42. Create a New Partition with NT, 2000, XP, and 2003

Create a New Partition with NT, 2000, XP, and 2003

Use XP’s Disk Management console to create a new partition in unused disk space.

You can create a new partition in unallocated or unused space on a disk drive with Windows XP or partitioning software like PartitionMagic. In this hack, we’ll create a new 20 GB NTFS partition in unallocated disk space using Windows XP’s Disk Management tools. To do this, launch Control Panel, select Administrative Tools, then Computer Management, double-click Disk Management under Storage, and follow these steps:

  1. Right-click on the area marked Unallocated. Select New Partition from the menu that appears (Figure 5-3).
