To split a partition

  • 1. Select a partition.
    2. Click Partition > Split.
    3. Click the Data tab.
    4. From the Original Partition group box, select the files and folders you want to move to the new partition, then click the single right arrow.
    Click the left arrow to remove selected files and folders from the new partition. To move all files and folders to the new partition, click the double right arrow. You can also click the left arrow to move selected files and folders back to the original partition. You must, however, have at least one file or folder remaining in the original partition.
    5. (Optional) Type a name for the new partition in the Label text box.
    6. Select a partition type from the Pri/Log drop-down list.
    7. Click the Size tab.
    8. Size the new partition by moving the bar on the far right in the disk map, or by typing the number of MB in the Size text box.
    The original partition will be adjusted to use the remaining space.
    9. Click OK.

    1. PowerQuest does not recommend splitting the partition that includes your operating system.
    2. If Split is dimmed (unavailable) on the Partition menu, it is most likely because you are trying to split a primary partition when you have already reached the maximum four primary partitions (such as three primary partitions and one extended partition) allowed on a hard disk. You can, however, use Split on a logical partition within an extended partition.
    3. You can split partitions if they are 100 MB or larger.
    4. A FAT partition must have at least 5% unused space, or the Split operation will be dimmed (unavailable) on the Partition pull-down menu. A FAT32 partition requires 10% unused space to split.
    5. You cannot use the Split operation to convert the original partition from primary to logical or vice versa.
