shrink and partition drive in vista
Posted on 2010-08-30
I have a 224 gig drive with 133gigs free. Vista Home Premium installed. I
will allowed to shrink to shrink the partition up 22.4 gigs.. I
want to dual boot to Vista andd lunix so I need to free about 50gigs to install
lunix and some under applicaion on lunix. when I click on shrink I see at the botton on the box "Size of available shrink space can be restricted if snapshots or pagefiles are enabled on the volume"
Total size before shrink in MB 229930
Size of available shrink space in MB 2375
Enter the amount space to shrink in MB 51200
Total size after the shrink in MB 0
When I enter the amount of space to shrink 51200 it will not let me it says 0.
anything over the available shrink space 2375 MB it will not accept.
How can get vista to let me shrink it 50g?
