How to Partition your Hard disk in Windows 8/8.1 ?

This post is dedicated to my cousin who asked me how to go about partitioning a hard drive for his newly bought laptop.

The prerequisites to partition a hard-disk is that you ought to be logged in as an administrator and have free space in your hard-disk.

Steps to be followed:
  • Start button -> Control Panel -> System and Security ->Administrative Tools ->Computer Management
  • On the left side of the window you will find Storage. Click on Disk Management under Storage. A new window will open up.
  • Right click on a free unallocated-drive on your hard-disk and click new simple volume.
  • Click Next.
  • You can either select the default size or type the size of he volume you wish to create. It is in megabytes (MB) and not gigabytes(GB). 
  • Click Next.
  • A format partition dialog box appears. Click next if you wish to format with the default settings, else click on do not format option.
  • Click Finish after reviewing your choices

Thats how simple it is. :)
