Divide Hard Disk Windows 8

Generally when you buy a new notebook or desktop computer, it has only one  local harddisk drive letter, usually it will be the C drive only.

If you want to have new drive letter for example D or E without adding new physical harddisk, you can do by shrink the volume of C drive and make new partition for new drive.

Same as in Windows 7, to divide the partition and create a new volume in Windows 8, you can do easily without  using additional software/application.
