As the title says. I can't remember the last time I actually partitioned a drive, I think it was WAY back in the WinXP days. I'm after a partition for my C: drive and then a partition that I can stuff my games on to.
I'm glad you ask

If you want to find out more, here's a vid of it. I even used it to get rid of a bad sector.

I used the built in Disk Management application last time I wanted to create partitions.
It is better to use native tool if partitioning secondary drive or partitioning while installing OS.
There are many applications which can be used, I tested EasyUS partition master once when was converting C to gpt without losing data.
Note: After OS install if you trying to partition base drive there can be small performance hit.
