    It seems now its clear. Was confused about changing partitionsizes(needing a different tool Partition Magic) which is not the case right now.
    maybe i should establish at least 400 gb for secure zone
    Since once i had an overlapping partitions-problem C + D with no more access to D i would be wise to do it this way.
    C-200 gb Win7-System
    D-300 gb Non- important image-data saved on next Partitition or externally.
    E- 1100 GB
    F- 400 gb Secure Zone
    Could it decrease to enlarge E later.
    What do you think?
    NB: The fact that Win7 is establishing two partitions could be confusing also.

    Secure zone of Trueimage-installation: Have it now thanks to manual....:
    Space is used in unallocated location of HDD. one can then choose the size to use for a fat32-partition(if that the right term).
    Will now remove the last volume which is 406gb eff. to store two system-partitions of 200gb.
