Hi there, I have an 80GB disc, it has 2 partitions "Recovery" (8GB) and "Local Disk" (72GB). About 20GB of Local Disk is used. (Windows XP Home SP1) I would like to split the 72GB into 2 partitions, of 36GB each. I have run Windows Disk Defragmenter and nearly all of the files are now in the first 20Gb of the disc. It shows that there is a batch of data of about 2GB (guessed) about 3/4 of the way along the disc. So there are four areas: (approximately) 20GB mostly used, 30GB unused, 2 GB used, 20 GB unused. The DD9 User's Guide says use "Create Partition" and select "Use free space of existing partitions". So far so good. My question is; when I select the new partition to be 36GB, and commit the operation, will DD9 move that 2Gb of data so that it can create the new partition?. If not what can I do? Alternatively, could I use "Resize Partition" to reduce the partition size from 72GB to 36Gb and afterwards create a new partition in the unallocated space. I have the same question though, does DD9 Resize move data so that it stays inside the new boundaries of the resized partition? Many thanks for your advice on this.
