Cant shrink partition

Last Modified: 2015-10-11
Hello Experts,
I have a remote laptop, Toshiba core i7 win 10

it does not let me shrink the c: partition to around 300 gb
the d: partition I just created but it only allows me a max capacity of 2.9 Gb i need this to be around 600 Gb

I used MINI TOOL PARTITION, but it shows a message sayng cant do the shrink becasue the disl is in use... and requests restart... after restart all is the same... no change

Also used Defragler before shrinking and I have noticed that after defragmenting;  a few sectors at the end of the space remain unmoved... could this be the problem ?

What can I do to shrink the c: partition?
