  1. Hello,

    Why would you want to partition your HDD? That 80GB is small to begin with.

    However if you really want to go with it download EASEus free edition:


    Here is a youtube video of it:


    Make sure you backup your important files before you do it - just in case you mess up.
  2. Make sure you backup you may lose data doing partitions

    Download EaseUS home edition:

    Install, open program, click on Go to Main Screen. Once you get there, Right click on the drive that you want to split on the bottom half of the screen. And click on Resize partition, so you can drag it to have less space on your hard drive. Then you will have unallocated space. Right click on the unallocated space and you can then right click convert to Primary and format it to NTFS or whatever format your original hard drive uses such as FAT32 or FAT16.

    Let me know how it worked out.
