I bought a laptop with a 500GB HDD. It came with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. The drive was partitioned into one 452GB partition (C:) and a recovery partition.
I decided to divide the C Drive. The size of C drive is 411 GB (452-41) where 41 GB space is utilized by the OS and other pre-loaded software.
My goal is the following partitions:
- C: of 111GB
I did steps 1 & 2 successfully with Windows 7's built-in partition tool (the one which opens from control panel). After that the tool shows only 14GB as a third partition instead of 100 GB as i wished in step 3. C: drive is 211GB.
Why did this happen? How can I fix it?
