Can anyone recommend a good free program for partitioning a hard drive in Win 7?

You can partition your hard drive with Win 7 during installation. Are you talking about partitioning a hard drive with data on it?

Are you partitioning a slave drive? If so, then just partition it using Win 7, under disk management.

Yes, it has data on it. I just installed Windows yesterday and for some reason I missed the option to partition--it just kind of installed on its own. I've installed a few programs already. It would be easy to wipe the HDD and reinstall but would it be possible to avoid this?
