    Hello Poolwizard,

    If you shrink the drive in half first and create a new partition with the unallocated space, then yes.

    Re: Disk Management - Shrink Partition

    hi,

    im thinking of doing this, but when i right click my c:/ and click shrink volume, after it has finished querying shrink space, the maximum MB is only 60, when my c:/ is 584 GB, is there something wrong?

    the status of c:/ is healthy

    The free space may be allocated. Try again with the free program Partition Wizard Home edition to see if it may allow you to use more space for the partition.

    I've tried this disk management but it's odd i cant combine the free space which is released from drive d: and the system partition c: together...

    Hello Esther, and welcome to Vista Forums.

    Could you post a screenshot of your Disk Management window showing the full layout of your HDDs? This will help us determine what the issue may be.

    Just wanted to say THANKS for this excellent guide.
    Took me less than 10 min. to make my partition, and that was with me reading everything very carefully and moving very slowly.
    I appreciate this excellent guide and all your excellent help.
