Step by step.
1)open partition magic then on the screen,to your left,you will see where it is written "pick a task",just below you will see something like create a partition,click that and this will open up a wizard,click next on that and
2)you will be brought to a page asking you to choose were you want the partition to be.ideally you just click next because the best recomended position would have already been highlighted for you.
3)Now you will be asked to choose the partitions where you want the free space to come from,again this the best will be highlighted for you so click next.
4)now you will be asked what you would like the new space to be,pretty straight forward ther,you enter the size,label and i would advise you to press next but its up to you if you would like any other details.then press next.
5)you will be asked to confirm and after you have made sure all is as you want it,click on finish.
6)you will come to the initial page,now look to your bottom left were you can now click apply.The computer will ask if it can reboot,just say yes and it will restart.
7)This part requires patience becuse pmagic will have to apply the changes on computer startup.just let it finish and you will be taken to your normal windows were vista will say it has found new devices and so on,just bclick ok and you will be fine.
side notes.
1)Vista might also require a reboot to install the partition,it will tell you if so.
2)when partition magic is applying the changes (7) you might get a blank screen,dont panick,just make sure you are well connected to power and wait.

Lost partion

you have to format drives d, e and f. Go to my computer;then right click on the raw drive (d,for this instance); click format, disk capacity and allocation sizes will be shown; select either quick format or full format. You may also compress the disk. Do the same for drives E and F. Formatting may take a few minutes depending on the size of the drive.Hope this helps.
