Have you installed any service packs to this perticular box, and is it workstation or server?

After you install the latest service pack. open disk administrator and you will see the free space on the drive. You can divide the drive up anyway that you want. You will also be able to assign the free space a drive letter after you format it through disk administrator.

Take Care

As the others have sayed, install the latest Service Pack, then you can:
1) Create a new partition using Disk Manager
2) Use an utility like Partition Magic and enlarge the existing partion to the whole free space.

But before you do anything, be sure you backup the existing drive...

PARTITION MAGIC BECAUSE IF I MESS UP I HAVE TO SPEND ANOTHER 5 HOURS ON THE PHONE TALKING TO THE PROGRAMMER OF MY PROGRAM. THANKS FOR THE TIP THOUGH, BUT IT IS NOT THATIMPORTANT I MAKE IT ONE PARTITION.
