You can do it in 2 ways: 1:you can try disk management,You can change/make partitions on your hard disk even when there are still files on it 2:you can try three party partition manager software,like as gaprted, MiniTool partition wizard and so on.

Yes, you can. But you have to be careful and make sure that boot files are on another partition.

Move/Resize Partition falls into to three scenarios:Extend PartitionShrink PartitionMove PartitionScenario 1: Extend PartitionIf there is an unallocated space neighboring to the partition to be extended, you can direct extend partition.1. Launch MilfordSoft Partition Star.2. Select and right click the partition to be extended, click "Move/Resize" from the drop-down menu. (If the unallocated space is behind the target partition, drag the right end of the partition handle rightwards to the largest extend; If the unallocated space is before the target partition, drag the left end of the partition handle leftwards to the largest extend). After that, click "OK".3. Click "Apply" to execute pending operation.If no unallocated space for extending partition is available.1. Launch MilfordSoft Partition Star.2. Shrink an existing partition to get an unallocated space for extending partition.Example 1: If the existing partition is behind the target partition which is to be extended, drag the left end of the partition handle rightwards to a desirable extend;Example 2: If the existing partition is before the target partition, drag the right end of the partition handle leftwards to a desirable extend. After that, click "OK" and you will get an unallocated space.3. Follow steps of "If there is an unallocated space neighboring to the partition to be extended, you can direct extend partition".Scenario 2: Shrink Partition1. Launch MilfordSoft Partition Star.2. Select and right click the partition you want to shrink, click "Move/Resize" from the drop-down menu.3. Drag the left end of the partition handle rightwards or right end of the partition handle leftwards to shrink partition. After that, click "OK".4. Click "Apply" to execute pending operations.Scenario 3: Move Partition to extend partitionIn scenario 1, we have said that we can directly extend partition if there is unallocated space neighboring to the partition you want to extend. What if the unallocated space is not adjacent to the partition you want to extend? Now, we need to Move Partition.Here we will show how to move the unallocated space behind E: to be adjacent to out target partition C: which is to be extended.1. Launch MilfordSoft Partition Star.2. Select and right click E: , click "Move/Resize" from the drop-down menu.3. Drag the partition handle rightwards to make the unallocated nearer to the target partition you want to extend.4. Now the unallocated space is behind D: and before E:. Select and right click "D:", then click "Move/Resize" from the drop-down menu.5. Drag the partition handle rightwards and then the unallocated space will be adjacent to C:. Now you can extend the C: with the unallocated space.6. Click "Apply" to execute pending operations.

You can make multiple partition in DOS like windows but the maximum size of one partition will 2 GB as DOS supports FAT 16.

You are NOT limited to only two partitions in Windows 98. When you run FDISK, make a primary partition and then create an extended partition. Depending on the size of your hard drive and the size of the partitions you would like to create (without exceeding the 127G barrier, BIOS dependent) you may create as many partitions within the extended partition as you would like. After creating both the primary partition and the extended partitions you must reboot and then format each partition. Keep in mind that for every partition letter, Windows will use 8K of memory. You may want to edit your Config.sys file and change lastdrive=z to 2-3 letters beyond the drive letters assigned to your hard drive partitions, CD/ DVD drives and any flash drives or other removable storage you are using. It is rare that you would need 26 drive letters, so save yourself some system resources, especially since Windows 98 (SE) is limited to 512MB. Hope this helps.

Download &/or purchase a copy of Acronis True Image Home. This allows you to create a "Secure Zone" - a hidden FAT partition; enable "Acronis Start Up Manager" - f11 startup option to boot into the Acronis toolset from the hidden partition; and create an image your boot (or other) partition in the hidden partition.

yes, if ubuntu is on a different physical drive or on a different partition if you are stuck with one physical drive. No if it on the same partition as windows The soloution, create a new fresh partition just for windows and make it about , a minimum 40GB

No diskdefragmenter cannot be used to format a partion. It is used to make all the files to get fragmented. Formatting of partition can be done by using disk management option in the computer management

You might be looking for a partition resizer. That will allow you to change the size of either partition. I'd backup the data on both before you do though, just in case.

Your question isn't exactly clear. If you want to install Ubuntu natively onto a partition, you must format the partition or make a new one. It is quite possible to resize the XP partition and make a new one without losing data on the XP partition. Ubuntu already includes the tools to do this.

As many as it can handle (how big it is). And adding partitions does not make more space. It's like putting a brick wall in the middle of a football field. :-P This is depend on your disk style, if your disk is MBR, you could only create four primary partitions or three primary partitions with one Extended partition (you could create many logical partition under extended partition) at most If your disk style is GPT, you could create as many as you can. here is an article about how to make partition from
