Unable to shring volume Server 2008

I need to shrink the D: Volume on a 64Bit Server 2008 R2 system; 500GB with 121GB free space. I only need about 40 GB to increase C: volume size
Shadow Copy is disabled and there are no Page files on D:
The utility in Disk Manager reports size of available shrink space is zero

You need to defrag the drive fully before you can shrink it.
