Hi techies,
I am using windows vista Home premium 32 bit operating system. My
laptop is hp pavillion dv6700

Problem: I used perfect disk to get 60 gb of shrink space. I was happy
about this because without perfect disk i got shrink available as just
600MB. After this when i use shrink volume in vista for 20Gb out of
this 60 gb. available vista says. Disk Logical Error "ACCESS
DENIED".Even i tried reducing the shrink partition to till 5gb. I took
off the following already - hibernation, pagefile etc.. while doing
this.

What next to do? I am stuck here. Please don't suggest to have vista
reinstall because i dont have vista CD. I need to solve this Access
Denied problem.
Even gparted i dont want to use because it needs Vista CD after
partioning. Thanks in advance to all techies.

Error : Disk Logical Error ACCESS DENIED
Solution: not yet solved .... asking help to all techies. before
writing solution please read problem.Thank you

ScreenShot: I am attaching exact error screenshot zip here.

I had a similar problem, and successfully used Easeus Partition
Manager Home Edition to shrink my Vista system partition. It is free,
and available from http://www.partition-tool.com/download.htm.

It had to reboot into a special mode to be able to accomplish the
task, but it worked fine for me. It did not need a Vista CD.

Vista won't really run with less than 8gb. Sounds like you've already removed half the system files to get to your 5gb. You'll have to do a factory re-install (Look up you Laptop Manual for how to do this) and try to research things before you start deleting stuff.

Wrong answer here.

The O/P now has logical disk errors. They were either there before or may
have been caused by PerfectDisk. We don't know. But, any decent partition
manager will NOT allow a partition to be resized or altered if these errors
are present. It this were allowed a person could lose everything on the
partition/drive.

Or, the OP misreported the error message, and actually got "Logical
Disk Manager, Access is denied", which is the standard uselessly
uninformative error message you get when Vista's shrink volume can't
shrink a volume. Since his attached screenshot didn't come through to
those of us following this group via nntp, I can't say for sure, but
the fractured writing style of the OP leads me to believe this might
be the case. ;)

Old rules die hard, but they do die.

Why should a person read through the posts of 4-5 other individuals to see
the latest answer (on the bottom) - just because people who demand that
others abide by usenet outdates rules refuse to trim the post before they
answer.

I don't have to read the same answers to the post, over and over yet again,
because those who would like bottom posting REFUSE to trim because they are
lazy.

I top post. My answer is right there - in your face. You don't have to read
through the others YET AGAIN.

Get over your etiquette fetish!

acess is denied?????

while trying to shrink basic drive??

well, it did go through, a black partition means unused partition was created, remember
:-??
after that you rejoined the shrink volume again with base drive. and then you have this error.
i would say if you can't fix it with softwares etc. try recovery, oh and have you tried system restore it might help. then after that just transfer your data, mostly, movies, songs etc :)) into a HDD and hit that F9/ F10 button.



you can try Dcomcnfg too. start this service. :-?? and [-o<
