I was wondering if creating a partition on a drive as a logical drive would delete all the files currently on that drive. Thanks

the data on the drive will only be lost if you delete the current partition... you can create a second partition but only if the hdd has any unpartitioned space..

So if I have unallocated space and I change it into a logical drive so that windows can recognize it none of the files that are on that drive will be deleted?
