How to create partition without reformatting Windows 7?

The easiest way to make partitions with a new hard disk or with a hard disk where you can erase all data is when you make the installation of your OS.

During the installation process you get the option to select the drive for the installation that is exactly where you can change the size of the partition that will be used for the OS and also create other partitions.

So next time when you do a clean install with your hard disk, try that method. It will definitely save you time and resources.

Since you already have your OS installed and would like to preserve the data already in your HDD you need a third party software.

My recommendation goes to “Easeus Partition Master Home Edition” which is absolutely free to use for home users.

You can look at more information or download the software Easeus Partition Master Home Edition

Good Luck
