  1. partitioning will not help you in the long run.... you are putting your data on the same drive. if that drive fails it will not matter if the data is on the c: or the d: the drive has still failed.
  2. Best answer
    Yes you can. You first need to resize the C to a smaller partition. Assuming its a 500GB drive, resize to 250GB. Then with the free space create a new one.
  3. forget about third-party software, it's totally not necessary, you can do it with Windows
