  2. Zek_99 - perhaps you're new to computers? I assume that you are since otherwise you would have noticed that there is MORE THAN ONE version of Windows. Please try to actually be helpful to the person asking the question, instead of patronising to other people who are actually trying to help. Also please note that your "solution" would create a partition of just 32GB - which is presumably exactly why the person asking the question needs Swiss Knife in the first place.
