Cannot Create Partition in Partition Manager Error

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

Hi Experts!

I need help on how to fix this error I get from partition manager. I don't really know what I'm doing here. Here's the error that I am getting from Partition Manager:

Disk Management

You cannot create a new volume in this unallocated space because the disk already contains the maximum number of partitions.


I have windows 7 Operating System and a 1 TB hard drive. Can someone give me a guide on how to fix this?

Hi Michelle,

To partition your hard disk, first of all you have to be sure of availability of unallocated disk space or free space within the extended partition on the hard disk. If unavailable, create some first.

– Go to computer management in your control panel and click on 'Administrative tools.

– Click on 'computer management and  click on 'disk management' under 'storage'

– Then right click on 'an unallocated' region on your hard disk and click on 'new simple volume'. Click 'next' in the new simple volume wizard.

– Choose the size of the volume you need to create and click next. Then choose a letter you wish to name your new created volume. The last step will be for you to decide whether or not you wish to format your new volume. Click finish and the volume will be created.
