Hi


Normally (MBR) you are allowed upto 4 Primary partitions or upto 3 primary partitions + extended partition containing a number of logical partitions

[not sure of number of logical partitions probably linked to number of letters C: D: E: then f: to x: (need y: & z: for CD & usb devices)]

If you have Vista or 7 there is probably a small boot partition of 100MB with no drive letter allocated.
and or a recovery partition without a drive letter

without knowing which operating system and seeing description or picture what you have in Disk Management I cannot advise further.

regards

Mike Barnes

hello, you can make a new simple with an unallocated space, not a free space. So you need to delete the free space to change it into unallocated space and then create new simple volume.If this method is still unavailble, you can try some third party disk manager, such as Partition Magic, AOMIE Partition Assistant,etc.

the green free space is caused by you delete the partition in windows disk management, you need to delete it one more time and then it will become unallocated space. Through 3rd party partition software like Aomei's partition assistant, yes you can drectly partition it, Partition Magic is out of date.

Oh, sorry I forget that in disk management you need to delete all the extended partition and then you could delete it. But AOMEI partition software will recognize it as an unallocated space, and when you create partition with it, AOMEI partition software will format it, there is no problem.
