How to partition hard disk?

Generally speaking, a new hard disk has no partitions. So we often need to perform partition management to a new hard disk before it is useful. This means we have to define the size of each partition and repartition the hard disk. All this partition management is to make the computer management and data storage convenient and easy.

Following are the screenshots on how to partition hard disks with the professional partition manager - Partition Wizard:

Next we will see a prop up dialogue box for creating partitions.

For newly created partitions, we can set label New System for them. And the type of the partition is primary partition, the volume symbol is K. Then select the file system NTFS. We can also set the size of cluster, if no other special requirements, just set it Default. From the partition information below we can set the size of the created partitions, here we set it as 21.94 GB. At last, click OK and apply all changes.

A new partition is created as the following picture shows:

All these same operations can be carried out by other different operating systems such as Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows 2008, Vista, and Windows 7.
