I can not create partitions on my primary 120 gig hard drive. I have 40+ gigs empty, yet, whenever I use Acronis Disk Director Suite and click on the "Create Partition" on the wizards tool bar, then check "Free space of the existing partitions" to use unallocated space and the free space on the C: drive. However, it only gives me 7.889 mb to work with, which is the unallocated amount. Is there some way that my C: drive has been locked so I can not create partitions from it? If this is the problem, how can I unlock it? Thanks, David. UPDATE: I have tried a few programs, and none allow me to edit C:. For some reason, its still being "locked" or whatever it is doing. What could be the reason for this?
