Default partition help

Hey im trying to create another partition on my hard drive using Partition Magic 8.0 but it fails and says too many errors to continue. I have tried scanning my disk for adware/sypware and viruses using up to date definition files and have also Defragged the drive. What else can I do to make this work or can I get another program that will make me a new partition?

PC Specs:

Corsair TX550M ENTHUSIAST 550W
Intel B85, S 1150, DDR3, SATA III, PCIe 3.0 (x16), MATX MoBo
Intel Core i7 4790K, S1150, Haswell, 4 Core 4.4GHz Turbo
16GB (4x4GB) Corsair Vengeance Blue DDR3 PC3-12800 (1600)
960G SanDisk UltraII SSD + 2TB SEAGATE Hard Drive
Windows 10

You need to update the program.

Download and ENPM801_H1.ZIP

Extract the update.exe from to the partitionmagic directory and run it then follow the instruction in and make sure you also replace pqmagic.ovl to the DOS folder inside the partitionmagic directory.
