How to divide Disk C in Window 8?


  • I'm using a Window 8 in my laptop, but there is only one disk hard drive( Disk C). How can I divide it into another disk? I am worrying that when I save something from Internet into my DISK C, the viruses may harm my computer.

  • Sounds like you are trying to create another partition.

    Go to the start screen and type diskmgmt.msc

    right-click on the result and 'run as administrator'

    Disk Management opens

    Right-Click your c:\ and select Shrink Volume

    Follow the wizard and shrink the volume by how big you want your new partition to be

    After the wizard you should have a black highlighted section next to the c:\ drive called unallocated space

    Right-Click the unallocated space and select Create New Volume

    Follow the wizard, don't forget to name the volume and assign a drive letter, finish the wizard and there you have a new partition to save your data to.

    Post if you have anymore problems
