    hope this procedure will help,instead of buying software
    1. Go to Start -> Right Click on Computer -> Manage
    2. Computer Management windows will open. Click on Storage -> Disk management
    3. Select the Drive you want to partition. Right click on the drive and click on Shrink Partition.
    4. It will query for the available disk space and then you will then be presented with a window showing you the Size of the Hard drive and the total amount available to Shrink. Enter in the amount you would like to shrink. This will be the size of the new partition. It can’t be more than the amount available to you and remember that Approx 1000 Mb = 1 GB
    5. After entering the values, click on Shrink and wait for the operation to complete. Depending on the size of the drive and amount to shrink this could take a while. Once completed, you would see an unallocated space which is the size you just shrunk the volume by. Select it and right click and then select New Simple Volume
    6. Follow the Wizard that appears and fill in the Size of the Partition. Normally the size to fill in is the size you just shrunk the drive by.
    7. Assign a drive letter, pick one of your choice as it doesn’t make a difference.
    8. Then on the Format page, Ensure NTFS is selected and then enter a name for your drive and click Next followed by Finish
    9. That’s it! You have resized your hard disk and created a new partition without any third party software

    But unapotaka kufanya hiyo partition inayohusiaha drive yenye boot sector always ushauri wa kitaalam ni kuchukua backup. Sometime it might happen mambo yasiwe mambo...... But anyway kwa kuwa kuna a software za ku recover file usiwe na shaka sana.

    But Ingekuwa vizuri kabla ya ku partion azima hata Externa kw amtu usave critical data file zako.

    Otheriwise good luck

    Mkuu kwenye windows xp hauzi kui shirik disk nakushauri tumia hiyo njia ya jamaa aliyokuambia utumie partition manager au utumie partition magic
    lakini kama computer yako imekuwa affected with virus jaribu kutafuta mtu akuazime external hard driver ili uifadhi vitu vyako kwani hiyo inangia kwenye boot inaweza ikashindwa kuwaka kabisa kama system yako iko affected with computer virus.
