How to Partition a Hard disk in New Laptop and Desktop | in Tamil Language.
Are you trying to partition your Hard Disk in your New Laptop?This video for you!!!

Disk partitioning is essentially separating the hard disk into different sections or parts for storage. If you want to try a new operating system without overwriting your main Windows drive, you can do this partitioning the hard drive.
  1. Open Computer Management by selecting the Start  button. The select Control Panel > System and Security > Administrative Tools, and then double-click Computer Management.

  2. In the left pane, under Storage, select Disk Management.

  3. Right-click an unallocated region on your hard disk, and then select New Simple Volume.

  4. In the New Simple Volume Wizard, select Next.

  5. Enter the size of the volume you want to create in megabytes (MB) or accept the maximum default size, and then select Next.

  6. Accept the default drive letter or choose a different drive letter to identify the partition, and then select Next.

  7. In the Format Partition dialog box, do one of the following:

    • If you don't want to format the volume right now, select Do not format this volume, and then select Next.

    • To format the volume with the default settings, select Next.

  8. Review your choices, and then select Finish.
     

Note: When you create new partitions on a basic disk, the first three will be formatted as primary partitions. Beginning with the fourth, each one will be configured as a logical drive within an extended partition.

Warning: Formatting a volume will destroy any data on the partition. Be sure to back up any data you want to save before you begin.
 

  1. Open Computer Management by selecting the Start  button. The select Control Panel > System and Security > Administrative Tools, and then double-click Computer Management.

  2. In the left pane, under Storage, select Disk Management.

  3. Right-click the volume that you want to format, and then select Format.

  4. To format the volume with the default settings, in the Format dialog box, select OK, and then select OK again

    Notes: 
     

  • You cannot format a disk or partition that is currently in use, including the partition that contains Windows.
     

  • The Perform a quick format option will create a new file table, but will not fully overwrite or erase the volume. A quick format is much faster than a normal format, which fully erases any existing data on the volume.
