    Windows Vista can do this with no extra software required.

    From the Control Panel go to Administrative Tools and then open Computer Management

    From the CM window, click on Disk Management.

    It will now show you all the Hard Drive and Partitions on your computer.

    You can right click a partition to shrink, expand or delete it. By shrinking or deleting other partititions, you should have enough space available to create a new partition (e.g. just to store personal files or backups).

    Note: Deleting a partition will erase the data stored on that partition. Shrinking or expanding a parition should not delete any data, but there is a chance something may go wrong so you should make a backup anyway.
