That’s why I would tell you that follow all the steps that I will tell you. And in this way, you can easily partition your hard drive in Windows 10.

Now the computer management window will open in front of you.
Click on “Storage” and then choose the “Disk Management” option.
Now you will see all those drives that you created when you installed Windows 10 on your computer. Only one device has been created on my computer which is visible with the name “C”. So now we will partition the C drive and create a new drive named “E” from it.
Right-click on the “C” drive. Then choose the “Shrink Volume” option.
It will take some time so you will have to wait for a while.
In the first option, you will be shown the total size of the disk. Like in my case the size of my disk is 60 GB. And now I will create a new drive named “E” of 5 GB. You can also create a drive of more or less than this.
Enter the amount of space to shrink in MB: 5000 MB
And now click on the: “Shrink” option.
Now a disk of 5 GB will be created in the name of unallocated memory. Now you can convert this memory into Disk E or any other name.
Right-click on the Unallocated memory option.
Then choose the “New Simple Volume” option.
Now a page with the name of New Simple Wizard will open in front of you. Click on the “Next” option.
Click on “Next”.
You can choose any letter for the new drive. By default, I am getting the letter E-show. But you can also change it.
Then click on “Next”.
Now you will select these options:
File System: NTFS
Allocation Unit Size: Default
Volume Lable: (any name you like)
Click on the “Next” Option.
Click on the Finish button.
Now you have to wait for a while. And after that, you will see the new disk that you have created here. I am sharing the screenshot in which you can see that we have created a new disc named E and now it is showing here.
Now you can check whether the new drive has been created or not by going to Computer Management or My Computer.
So in this way you can do disk management. If you have done disk management and you are not happy with it then you can also delete it.
