    Hi

    does anyone know where I can get some partition software that isn't a trial
    that lets me actually partition my hard drive?

    Hi Luke,

    You can do this from your Vista installation DVD. Just do a "Custom
    (advanced)" install and click "Drive options (advanced)". The "Create"
    option will create a new partition and allow you to adjust it's size.

  3. Any one you pay for would do the job most likely. Acronis Disk Director
    Suite 10.0 is a fine program and is 100% Vista compatible.

    Hi, Luke.

    Every Windows since Windows 2000 has included Disk Management
    (diskmgmt.msc), which can do almost any partitioning job that you need.
    Windows XP added more functions to DM and Vista added even more.

    Of course, this doesn't do you much good if you are trying to partition the
    system or boot drive you are running at the moment. But if you are
    dual-booting or using multiple physical drives, be sure to look at what you
    already have before deciding to purchase something.

    Hi Luke,

    Take a look at these two tutorials for how to use Disk Management in
    Vista.

    To add another partition:
    http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/95398-disk-management-shrink-partition.html

    To delete a partition and extend another partition to make it bigger:
    http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/95418-disk-management-delete-extend.html


    Hope these help,
    Shawn
