I recently purchased a new PC with 250G HDD, with Vista. Dell formatted 10G
for a recovery partition, and left the remaining ~240Gig for the OS. I have
used the Shrink function to decrease that 240Gig to create a new
partition(s), but the shrink function lets me decrease the size by only
~88gig. Which means I now have my partitions as such (C
at ~150gig, (D
at 10Gig and (e
at 88gig. I would like to decrease the C: partition even
further, since that's >85% unused, but I do not get the option to decrease
that partition even further.
Is this a limitation of Vista to reserve >100Gig for the OS? Or do I need
to buy 3rd party SW (i.e. Partition Magic, etc.) to decrease that further?
Any help is greatly appreciated. I'm new to Vista...so be gentle.
