Richie would like to know how to partition his hard drive. Leo says that TerraByte Drive Image is a good one to use (recommended by Steve Gibson) but image your hard drive first, just in case. Other options include Partition Magic, Acronis, Macruyn Refectm, and EaseUS Partition Master. You can even do it from your command line with DiskPart.
