How to make a disk partition?

Excuse me, do any of you know how I can create a partition on the hard disk?
I tried with Gparted, but it won't let me make a partition that is smaller than the size of my disk.


I also tried from the default disk application, but it didn't allow me (I think it's because the disk is being used).
Can anyone help me?

Returns the error because the disk is in use. It is necessary to boot from another device such as a USB drive.

e.g. run gparted from your ZorinOS Live disk USB drive.

Yes, to be precise, run live usb, run Gparted and then 'unmount' the partition - you should then be able to resize the sda2 partition (make it smaller), then create a new one after it.
