    From the factory, which partitions should exist on the SP3? This is how mine looks and includes 4 partitions already and I am sure there is something extra as I previously tried to load Windows 10 without much success. I am now trying to split my main partition to have an OS and data partition be separate. Any assistance is appreciated. Thanks.

    The number of partitions is correct. Which one do you think is extra?

    I don't know why you would want to separate the OS from data on an SSD, but all you need to do is shrink your C drive to allocate however much space you want for the new volume (partition) and then create a new volume with that space.

    As stated, the current partitions are correct. To split the C: Primary partition, I'd suggest you use the free version of EaseUS Partition Master.
