In Windows 7, Is there a way to snap a window to a quarter of the screen instead of half?

When I move a windows by the title bar to the left or side of the screen the windows "snaps" to the side and resizes itself to half the screen size. Is there a way to snap the windows to a quarter of the screen size?

"You can use Winsplit Revolution.

In addition to having shortcut keys for positioning windows it also has a function called Drag'n'Go. By default you need to press Ctrl+Alt to enable it. When there are multiple possibilities you can use scroll button to switch between them.

Apparently program was discontinued and original website doesn't have downloads anymore. You can still download program from Techspot, there are installer and portable versions available."

I found that if you have an ATI graphics card installed, you get to use this program called HydraVision. It has a feature that lets you divide your screen into quarters, and you can "snap" any window to a quarter by simply right clicking on the title bar and choosing that option. Not as convenient as the mouse snap but still does the job.

There's also AquaSnap, if the others don't work out for you.
