Disk Management - Shrink Partition

Re: Disk Management - Shrink Partition Problem

Hi Friends,

I bought a new sony laptop last week which was having Windows Vista Business Edition. I have totaly 200 GB hard disc space and I tried to make partition, as mentioned in the forum, i didnt used any third party software to make partion, I just right clik my computer->manage->disk management then I right clicked and clicked the shrink volume it showed a dialog box and it has automatically shown some space, i didnt specifed my own space size. I just accepted the size which it showed, then i gave shrink. and its showing 100 GB in C drive and 76 GB as unallocated. I want to keep only 50 GB for C drive but now it is having 100GB, Is ther is any possiblity of making reshrinking this process (ie can I make it as a old one having 200 GB space in c Drive so that I can do the proces again carefully using some third party softwares

Please reply me back


Thanks in Advance,
Arun

Hi Arun, and welcome to Vista Forum.

Extend C: back into the new unallocated 76 GB partition. If it is no longer unallocated then Delete the new 76 GB partition first. This tutorial will show you how to.

http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/95418-disk-management-delete-extend.html


Afterwards, do this tutorial again to shrink C: , but this time type in how much available free space you want to shrink C: by (step 6) to have only 50 GB total left. (1024 MB = 1 GB)

Hope this helps,
Shawn

LOL, I like that Bennys. :geek:

I would say about the only thing you can do is to either start deleting what you no longer need on the hard drives to create more free space, or get another hard drive to use. :(

They have gotten pretty reasonable here lately though for some of these larger 750 GB to 1 TB drives.

Bennys,

If your D: drive is a recovery partition, then it is best to leave that as is unless you have a Vista installation DVD to use to install Vista with instead. If you do, then you can delete the partition to wipe it out. Afterwards you can use it separately or Extend C: into it for C: to be a larger drive with more free space.

Thanks...I'll leave it alone. But why did it fill up so quickly? Is it because I ran CCleaner a few times and deleted the recommended file on my computer?
Anyhow, from ow on, where do the backup files goes?

If it is a Recovery Partition, then that is placed on there by the computer manufacturer (OEM). It is used for you to be able to do a clean install of Vista with. They are usually not very large in size. Some OEMs like HP has a HP Recovery Manager program that stores backups on this D partition. It would fill it up quickly, but it would delete the old backups as new ones were created when it runs out of space.


CCleaner would not have any affect on this partiton. Any file backups or System Restores you do in Vista would be stored on C: instead.

Cool!
Please assure my understanding. The D: drive will always be backing up new files but in order to do that, it must clear the old ones for new arrivals and I should not be worry about it, correct?
Thanks for the info.

If you have a OEM computer that has a Recovery Manager type program, then usually it is only about the same as System Restore. It will not backup your files like you are wanting.

Greetings all,

I'm trying to shrink my primary partition by 30GB to dual boot Linux but it's proven impossible so far for me. I have plenty of space to do so. I've tried using the Disk Management utility and also tried getting it done from the command prompt with no success. No matter what I do, I run into an "Access Denied" message. I've read that it works by booting into Safe Mode, but that didn't help. Nor did turning off UAC. I'm logged into the Administrator account. I've turned on the Administrator diagnostic account via command prompt, but still cannot shrink the partition. I'm ready to format, install Linux (Ubuntu 8.04) first, then reinstall Vista. I've read that Linux has excellent partition software though I admit to having no hands-on experience with it. Been trying to sort this out for a few days now and any suggestions/advice would be very much appreciated... am at my wits end here. Thanks in advance!

Hello Moriarty, and welcome to Vista Forums.

Could you post a screenshot of what Disk Management reports with your current drive layout? This may help us determine what may be causing the "Access Denied" and a proper way for you to do this.

Thank you,
Shawn

Greetings Shawn,

Currently it shows C as the primary (and only) partition taking up all the space, 298.09GB. No unallocated space. I also have a DVD/CD-RW drive (D: ), and a 12-in-1 media reader (E:-H: ). Oh, this also is probably important; I purchased my machine from cyberpowerpc.com and had them pre-load my OS (likely a massive mistake). I have a sneaking suspicion it has a lot to do with that. This information may be prevalent as well; when I turned on the Adminstrator diagnostic account from the command prompt, the log-on screen, which before showed two Adminstrator accounts now only shows one. I took a look at the Event Viewer too and it showed errors which coincided with the times I was trying to shrink, but frankly, my tech level is nowhere near high enough to glean any useful information from it.

I'm at work at the moment but when I get home later today I'll post a screenshot for you. Great forums by the way, after reading over articles here for a month this site is what convinced me I wanted to try Vista. Thanks for the quick response!

mansrm81,

Space is not an issue for me. I only need 30GB as I won't be using Ubuntu that much. I just want to fiddle with it. I'm not really interested in using third party software, firstly because I've read quite a few posts around the net saying the results to Vista MBR can be catastrophic, and secondly because this should be something I can easily do within Vista itself. I'm more interested in learning how to do it this way and solve my current problem. If it comes down to it, I'll have no other choice, but I'm confident I can get this resolved on these forums.

Thanks for the response,

Carey

Shawn,

I'm not sure if I successfully changed ownership of the drive. I followed the steps in the tutorial but, as illustrated below, TrustedInstaller isn't in any of the boxes except the owner. I went ahead and tried to shrink anyway without success.

Thanks, Carey

Carey,

That would be where you would want TrustedInstaller to be. In the first image on the left, click on the Administrators (CRAY\Administrators) and see if you have Full Control checked as Allow.

Shawn,

Yes, Full Control is allowed. Actually, all three entries have everything set to Allow except Special Permissions if that is helpful.
