Most of my computer troubleshooting is done through Ctrl+Alt+Delete and/or google (or asking you fine folks). Would this preview be worth it for someone who is just a consumer, and do you think it would function on a 2year old Vista machine? (I got my current machine just before Windows 7 rolled out, and AFAIK it is Windows 7 Capable)

Sonic Glitch wrote:So, how do I go about creating a partition then? I think, to my understanding, I currently have two partitions, the C drive, and the D (recovery) drive. The C drive has a good amount of empty space, but I don't have any "unallocated" regions on my hard-drive with which to create a new partition. Is it possible to create a new partition out of the unused space in the C drive without reformatting and losing everything?
