You can't. The partition was created by SONY to hold recovery files because so many people lose their installation disks. So SONY created the partition, loaded the special software on it and put options in the menu to use it.

And all you need to do is create a partition that's large enough to hold your stuff; then back up your primary drive to the partition. If and when the time comes to restore, run Ghost and expand the backup image to your primary drive. Presto: You're back in business

For the best results, start with a fresh install of Windows, then load your applications, utilities, and drivers. Make sure to install all the latest updates as well, especially for Windows and your security software. Finally, tweak your system so it's exactly the way you like it: video resolution, wallpaper, the works.

Create The Partition
Fire up PartitionMagic (or a similar utility) and create a partition with enough available space to hold Windows and your apps. Ten gigabytes should be ample for most users (remember, the backup image will be compressed), but consider making it larger if you have a lot of programs installed or storage space to burn.

NTFS is the file system. As for the partition type, the active partition is the one that boots the system. You need to create a logical drive (that is, one you can assign a drive letter), which will live in an extended partition—the app takes care of that part.

Set Up Ghost
Run Ghost (or a similar utility) to create a new backup. Don't bother with scheduling, as this particular backup is a one-time-only affair. Disabling your virus checker prior to starting the backup is a good idea; AV can gum up the works.

Recover
To use the recovery partition, make sure you've backed up all your vital data to another drive or removable media, then boot your PC with the Ghost CD loaded in the optical drive. You'll then be able to restore from the partition to your primary drive, resulting in a ready-to-roll PC with all your apps, drivers, and settings loaded.

Well there is an array of programs out there that can do this for you. I suggest gparted. If you download the gparted iso and burn it to a disk. You can boot from the disk and then you follow the onscreen instructions. You can divide the partitions in any way you see fit. If you have any questions on using the program you can always contact me and I'd be happy to answer

I have 40gb hdd.need a partition scheme for windows xp such that i have 17GB gb for my games THANK YOU


Using the Windows XP installation disk, procede to install windows normally. In the windows setup you will get a list of options. Choose "C" to create partition. Create a 20GB partition. When that is done create another 20GB partition unless you plan on installing another Operating System such as Windows 7 later. If you want to keep XP and install Windows 7 at a later date on the same PC, then Set up 2 - 10GB partitions for Operating Systems and 1 - 20GB partitions for games. Make sure to install the games on the 20GB drive letter only so that Windows has enough space to run.

I want to do partition of my hard disk.So please help me


You need to partition your hard drive before you install an operating system on it. If you boot off your windows CD and your hard drive has a partition already you will get a screen that prompts you to format it. You can also dellete the partition and make a new partition. AT that time you can select the size of the partition you want to make and creat multiple partitions. If you choose you can creat one smaller partition from the space available for you to format and install windows on and format the rest of the available space later on after windows is installed from the Administration Tools in control panel.
