Unable To Shrink - Space Is Available

I have created a partition on my hard drive and moved over my user
folders successfully (93Gb).
I now have a 370Gb C:/ drive with 290Gb free space.
Initially the shrink volume was 0 until i ran a defrag program.
The new shrinkable space is about 150Gb.

BUT...when i procede with this i get an error;

"Unable to Shrink Volume C: there is not enough free space".

What can i do to resolve this?

Thanks,
Ian

Re: Unable To Shrink - Space Is Available
The built-in shrink utility will be able to decrease the partition size till
it bumps against the first unmovable/locked system file.

If you want to decrease the partition further you will need a 3rd party Disk
Management tool. I use Acronis Disk Director suite (ver 11.0 build 8027).
It is 100% Vista compatible.

After installing the above program, create the emergency CD. Reboot the
computer and boot up with this CD. Do your partition work from there.

You will not be hampered with locked files.
