How to Partition Without Losing Data in Windows XP

partition without losing data in windows xp
Partitioning a drive is the process of creating dividers on the drive. You may find that you have to change the partition size to increase or decrease the space on a particular drive. Creating multiple partitions carries the risk of losing data, though Windows XP allows a user to partition without losing data. However, you must have access to the Administrator account for XP before you can attempt it.

Step1: Login to XP under the Administrator account.

Step2: Click the "Start" button on the lower-left side of the screen and select "Run" from the Start menu.

Step3: Type "compmgmt.msc" in the Run window and click "OK." Select the "Disk Management" option.

Step4: Right-click on the unallocated space where you want to create the partition and select the "New Partition" option.

Step5: Click "Next" when the New Partition Wizard appears.

Step6: Choose the "Primary partition" option and click "Next."

Step7: Choose the size of the partition and click "Next." Assign a drive letter and click "Next."

Step8: Choose the "Format this partition with the following settings" option. Select the "NTFS" file system and assign a drive name. Click "Next."

Step9: Look over the options which you already selected and click "Finish" to create the partition.
