Does anyone know of any good partitioning software... forgot to make one when installing windows :(
Main problem has been 64bit compatibility... could possibly also be a windows 7 problem.

What exactly is your problem?

You must have at least one partition if you have an OS installed.

Are you looking for a non-destructive repartitioner?

Well i got windows 7 release candidate so come march I'm probably going to be getting the retail copy when mine expires.
Yes everything is in one big partition, and since I don't have another hard drive thats big enough for all my stuff I was wondering if there was any software that can create a partition without reformatting my hard drive, a non destructive partitioner as you said.

Since Vista (including Win 7) the standard inbuilt disk management tool has been able to shrink partitions to make space to create another partition on disks.
