Creating additional disk partition on windows server 2012 R2

Last Modified: 2019-11-21
Hi, I am trying to create an additional drive partition in Windows server 2012 R2 but keep receiving the error 'you cannot create a new volume in this unallocated space because the disk already contains the max number of partitions'

We currently have 3 partitions setup and i want to create a fourth.

Is there a way around this?
