Re: Cant resize c:\drive...
My physical & logical C:\ drive is showing the below figures in drive
Total Size before Shrink - 190526MB
Size of available Shrink - 18515MB
Enter Amount to Shrink - 18515MB
Total Size after Shrink - 172011MB
but in drive properties I have the below 101GB free.
but for some reason I cannot shrink below the top numbers.
I want to shrink by about 40GB to allow me to create a new partition.
Any guidance would be appreciated
