    Not Enough Space problem


    hi
    I am having laptop with 150gb hard. I have used 114gb and 29 gb is left. in computer management>disk management> this space is notified as free space. but when I right click on it and start wizard for new partition the wizard gives error in end that "there is no enough space on disk to complete this operation"


    please help me out and also tell me if I can extend or create new partition. I am having 3 partitions working now.

    You need to shrink the 150 GB partition so that there is free unpartitioned space available to creat a new partition in.
