Having problems with your Sony VAIO CS VGNCS215JP ?

How do I partition my Sony Vaio running on Vista? I bought a Sony Vaio that came with Vista and I also purchased MS Office 2007. But what I didn't do at the beginning is a problem now. When I store my work, it goes into My Document in C drive. I forgot to ask the store man to partition the HD so I could store my work in D drive, separate from the C drive. Now nobody can teach me to do it right. How do I partition it? Do I uninstall everything, format again, partition it, re-install? Someone said


Answers :

Yes you need to backup and redo it if you want seperate partitions, otherwise you are going to need a partition tool/software to do that.
Hello

There is partitioning tool in Vista.
Just check this link How to resize a partition in Windows Vista
Just shrink the C-partition and then make D-partiotion from the free space.
