VMware shrink an RDM and associated windows partition

EE,

I shrunk an RDM to 2TB so I can put it in virtual mode to prepare for an RDM to VMFS migration via sMotion. The only part that worries me is that even after removing the RDM from windows, deleting from disk and reattaching, the old 5TB size still exists.

How would I make the windows NTFS format recognize the new smaller size?

Thanks for reading
