Looking for a free HD partioning software for Windows XP PRO

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I would like to split my 640 gb HD into two and load Windows 7 on the new partition. Can someone recommend a solid free partitioning software? Thanks in advance.

GParted.

Not in-Windows, but the best of the free ones. Better than many of the paid-for ones, too.

If this is a fresh HD during the installation you can select the partition
manually and allocate the size that you want. But if you still want to use
third party application here's a good one http://gparted.sourceforge.net/

You can do this through Windows XP.
Start > Control Panel (Classic View) > Admin. Tools > Computer Management

When in the new Window, go to "Disk Management"
From there you should be able to figure out how to format the drives and create partitions.

I use http://www.partition-tool.com/personal.htm since years. Free, does anything you need for partitioning, runs from XP to Windows 7, no registration or struggeling with commandlines

This GParted is really a application for Linux based systems that has a work around to be used on Windows based systems. Much too much work for what is wanting to be done.
