Open Disk Management (type diskmgmt.msc in Run box in Start Menu)..and create the partition.

The same applies to Windows 2000 also.

Thanks

If C drive is full and you don't have Unallocated space then you need to use Diskpart.exe: -

I guess my question should have read: I want to split my c: into c: and x:, i can't do this in Disk Management, there are only oiptions to view properties. My drive is not full (80Gb, 75Gb free).
Cheers,
Bartley
