having a long drawn out affair with this partitioning so i can keep important files etc when i format my hard drive and re-install windows. When i make the partition should it be set as primary aswell? the reason i ask is everytime i run the Windows recovery disk it doesnt give me an option to format 1 of my drives but instead it just starts installing windows on the new partition giving me 2 installations of windows?

i used Paragon partition manager 8.0 PRO, it seems quite good.

Here's what i did

1st i clicked create partition and then a Wizard takes me through the steps, 1st i had to use the slider to decide how big of a partition i wanted (pic below)

Then i had to choose a partition type, i chose NTFS (pic below)

I then had to fill in more details sucj as assign drive letter etc.


And that was the end does this look right to you?
