volume snapshots in vista
Posted on 2007-07-20
when i try to shrink the C: drive using windows disk management tool, i get a message box saying "size of available shrink space can be restricted if snapshots or pagefiles are enabled on the volume". i was able to shrink it from 140GB to 75GB but now it says available shrink is 0. i turned off the pagefile and the C: volume has 50GB of free space.
what are snapshots and can they be disabled?
the machine is a new laptop, 2GB ram, T7300 intel running vista home premium
