Question about Dell Computers & Internet
I need to partition my drive but the Dell that I bought already has 4 partitions. Kindly let me know a way out with my problem.
Vista as other OS have a limitation on partitions, for Vista is 4, so you cant add another one.
The easiest solution is you to backup your recovery partition and then delete it.
You can use "Ghost" or other similar programs to copy that partition.

I don't recommend just partitioning with an active system.(only when you are reinstalling or installing your OS for the first time) The reason they have multiple partitions is for reinstall/recovery. You can right click on My Computer and click manage. Click disk managment to see more details about partitions. If it is an UNLETTERED partition leave it alone. I use partition magic (it's not free) There are free ones but you get what you pay for. Partitions are touchy with the possibliity you ruin your MBR and need to fdisk and reinstall windows. Be sure you know what you are doing.
