Convert Primary Partition to Logical Partition Without Data Loss


On basic disk, you can not create more than four primary partitions. If you need more partitions, you must convert one primary partition into extended partition that will contains logical partitions.

If data is not important, simple way is to delete one primary partition and make one extended partition. Then create many logical partitions in extended partition area.

But when data is important then you can convert this way.



I recommend you to backup your data first for safety reasons. Or for testing purpose, better way is to perform this operation in virtual environment i.e VirtualBox https://www.virtualbox.org/ or VMWare Player http://www.vmware.com/products/player/.

Update 16-10-2012: Note this procedure is only valid in ultimate editions, link http://www.zoringroup.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=2199#p9034 :(

It is very simple & looks elegant indeed.

Following are the steps on Zorin OS (I have tested on version 4 & 5, I hope it is correct for other versions)

  1. Step 1
    1. Right click on the panel at bottom & select 'Properties'
    2. Click 'Background' tab
    3. Select 'Solid color'
    4. Change the style to select transparency as required
  2. Step 2
    1. Right click on the Desktop empty area & select 'Change Desktop Background'
    2. Click 'Theme' tab
    3. Click 'Customize'
    4. Select 'Controls' tab
    5. Click 'Zorin OS Mac'
