Hi, Welcome to the pracitcehouse.com. In this article, we will learn how to create a partition in Windows without formatting C Drive. This method will be applicable for windows 7, windows 8 & windows 10.
So Total 3 Steps you need to follow in order to partition your hard disk drive in windows.

First Step: How to go to Disk Management in windows

Or Right Click to your My Computer / This PC -> Manage
In This computer Management Window click Disk Management. In this window, you will find the information about your hard disk drive and the total amount of GB, In my case it’s 220GB.
Second Step: Shrink your space
Shrink Volume From your hard disk drive. To shrink the volume you have to right-click in your disk drive and choose the Shrink Volume option.
Now in this window, you find out the information about your hard disk and how much space is available to shrink.
The first option you will find is Total Size Before Shrink in MB – This is the total space of your drive.
The second option you will find is the Size of Available shrink space in MB – This is the amount that is shrinkable.
The third option you will find is Enter the amount of space to shrink in MB – This will be your choice. How many GB you want to make your new drive. and we have to put the amount in MB. 1024MB equals to 1GB.
In our case, we want to create our new drive 120GB. So as 1024MB is 1 GB. 1024 x 120 = 122880MB
Now you can see the 120GB space is unallocated in our disk management.
Third Step – Assigning The Drive Latter to unallocated space.
Click that unallocated space and click New Simple Volume.
Click Next in this New Simple Volume Wizard Screen
Double check your space in MB and Click Next
Assign The Drive Letter .
Select any drive letter excep A and B.
Choose the partition format as NTFS or exFAT.
In this final screen make sure all your information is correct and then click the Finish Button.
