right click MY COMPUTER, choose MANAGE, choose DISK MANAGEMENT.

In the right pane, you will see the rest of your drive as unallocated space....right click it, choose New partition.

You are going to end up with TWO logical drives this way, though, rather than one drive.

This may or may not be bad...some people really don't like it, but many people do it on purpose for a variety of reasons, organization being the key.
