How to reduce the size of c:\ drive and create new partition for my new DV6-6b20se

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

I have just bought new notebook HP DV6-6b20se with i5/6GBRAM/750GB HDD/Win7 home premium
there are c:\ drive & recovery drive - I want to reduce the size of C:/ drive and creat one or two additional partitions for my personal data.

 

so.. please refer me to a guide in order to do it without loosing my original system (windows 7 home premium)
And what's the prefered size for c:\ drive

 

Thank you.

Basil

Will I be able to keep my windows 7 system and restore it from recovery media dvd without the need to re-partition again?
What's the preferred size for c:\ partition?

 

Thanks.

Yes...
And depending on what you want to save in the C:/.
100-300. I actually have a 560gig HDD and I allocated 200GIG to C:/.I don't save my random files there anyway just to keep them save if I encounter a prob answer should format.
