hold all my photos
That's not the way a typical disk image works.I'd have to use an external 3TB
Hi Trouble,That's not the way a typical disk image works.
Unless you perform a sector by sector image and choose to include "unallocated" space, then a typical disk image would just image the contents of the drive and its' partition's contents and at a typical 2:1 (50%) compression ratio, the size of a disk image would like be approximately half of the used space on the drive / partitions.
Having said that, there are any number of partition management software which will likely allow you to perform the desired tasks.
Since I use Acronis True Image for my disk imaging needs, I also use their disk director suite for partition management http://www.acronis.com/en-us/personal/disk-manager/
Neither of which are free
But the free alternatives listed and referenced in the links above are quite adequate.
Hi Saltgrass,Normally, the Windows Disk Management should be able to shrink the C: partition the way you want.
But something to watch out for might be the 3 TB drive and how it is set up. If you used a GPT configuration it should be fine but if you used MBR there may be some situation with the way the drive is being handled since MBR drives normally can only use 2.2TB.
Yes,you can. But it is a wise choice to create a disk backup using AOMEI Backupper before you resize your main boot drive in case of data loss. To create a new partition on your main boot drive, you must reallocate space from your drive. A freeware AOMEI Partition Assistant can help you realize it. Hope this helps.Can I reduce the size of the main boot drive containing Windows and all my programmes in order to create a new partition to hold all my photos without corrupting or losing the data on the boot drive?
You are welcome.Hi Chillysummer, many thanks. I did not load any 3rd party software in the end. I simply used the Windows 10 disk management tool. I reduced the size of the C:drive partition and then created a new partition - named itself G:drive. Thanks for the tip on AOMI though.
