How to partition a hard drive?

By enemyever ·
Hello, guys, I know you are all warmhearted, and I am confident that you will give me the best answer!
Recently, I found that my WIN7 is running more and more slowly, and I was told that the hard drive is filled with the data and rubbish, I really don't know how to deal with it, and I am not a computer expert. Is there anybody can help me? Or can you give me some advice about the operation?
I have searched on the internet, Partition Assistant can do this. Guidelines on <a href="http://www.extend-partition.com/resource/how-to-partition-a-hard-drive.html">how to partition a hard drive</a> by Creating, Deleting, Formatting and Resizing Partition--I have read this related detail article, and get the information about the operation, how do you think this, I want to connect some people's advice and want to share this with you all, thanks in advance.

You "really" don't know how to deal with it

But, you know how to use the a-tag?

I'm not clicking on it. I'm making a summary judgment.

Pick up a copy of the Yellow Pages (or 411.com) and find a local PC shop to take care of this for you. You obviously have no idea how your computer works and you'd only make things worse.

Larger Drive

Well, as stated, you are apt to be best off taking your computer to a local repair shop and either having them clean your hard drive, install a new larger hard drive, or both.

Programs like Partition Assistant can help you change the size of existing partitions on a hard drive that has multiple partitions. However, I don't think that changing partition sizes is the correct fix for you, and might not be possible.

Is it a safe assumption that you upgraded a Windows Vista system to Windows 7? That is the best explanation for why your drive is full and your system is sluggish.

If you bought a new Windows 7 system and it is full, you most likely have a serious mal-ware infestation.

Start by backing up, or having your files backed up.
Bring your disks and license keys to the repair shop and have them install everything onto a clean new hard drive.
Talk with them, and determine the level of anti-virus and anti-mal-ware software you need to protect your system.
