I would like to shrink a OS-drive of Windows 2008 R2 on a vm (ESX 4.1) from 50 to 40 GB.
I can run shrink within the OS, the volume shrinks to 40 GB and a new partition of 10 GB appears. However, then I have no means resizing the disk to 40 GB within VCenter.
I can change the size, it appears to be implemented (task completed) but it is not. Tried vmware convertor but it does not give me the option to resize.
