    Hello,

    I'd like to divide a new 60GB HDD into two 30GB partitions, volumes, sectors, or whatever they're called. How is this done? Are there any DIY Web pages with step-by-step instructions to accomplish this task?

    My OS is Windows XP SP2.

    TIA

    Greetings ddb,

    I used Windows Computer Management's Disk Management tool to create a partitioned drive, but have only succeeded in creating one large 60GB partition. I do not know how to split the drive into two 30GB partitions.

    Do you, or does anyone else, know of an online guide that will walk me through the process?

    Thanks
