Disk Partitioning Problem
by AbhiShake1 - 10/2/12 4:07 PM
Just bought a new Lenovo Laptop (750GB) with Windows 7 and was trying to partition the C drive.
I followed the steps below:
1. Open the Disk Management console by typing diskmgmt.msc
2. In Disk Management, I right-clicked the volume C (653 GB) that I wanted to shrink, and then click Shrink Volume.
3. In the Shrink dialog box, I just clicked Shrink.
4. I now have unallocated space.
5. I now right clicked on the unallocated space and clicked on "New Simple Volume"
6. On New Simple Volume Wizard, i clicked "Next"
7. Then on the specify volume size, I just left the simple volume sizes as it was shown and clicked on "Next"
8. After assigining the drive letter, I choose to format this volume and click on next.
This is where the problem starts:
1. I get a message " The operation you selected will convert the selected basic disk(s) to dynamic, you will not be able to start installed operating systems from any volume on the disk(s) (except the current boot volume). Are you sure you want to continue.
2. When I click "Yes", i get a error message
- "There is not enough space available on the disk(s) to complete this operation.
I am not able to detect this unallocated space anymore in the windows explorer. Can someone please help.
