I was sure I'd done that in the past but the option doesn't seem to be there to add a partition. When I go to Computer Management, Disk Management, I get the two drives showing, C: and D:. When I right click over either of them the options are

Mark Partition As Active
Change Drive Letter And Partition
Delete Partition

I was sure I'd previously used an option to Add A Partition; must be dreaming

You should be able to do that in XP using the Admin Tools, Computer

XP Home, again.

Next question, 'cos I've lost the last answer. I've got two SATA drives;
C: and D:  I want to partition them but have lost the plot. Not fit to
be let out!

The new PC, replacement for this one, arrived at lunch time.
I started with a clanger, by squashing it into the remaining space
next to the other two. Then, when I came to boot up, needed the 25
digit Windows XP code.....which, naturally, was stuck to the back
of the machine. So, everything disconnected and machine pulled, so
I could read the code, etc, etc.

Anyway, with it finally running, I decided to partition the two
SATA drives, before copying material from this one, that I'd
already copied to my external LaCie SATA drive.
Only, I can't. When I opt for Manage, then Disk Management, it
tells me I'm not authorised to access it.

I knew this wasn't going to be painless. Fortunately it's only a
couple of minutes work to reinstate the wiring to this, old,
workhorse, so that I can send out a Mayday!
