Disk Management - Shrink volume

Posted: 01-21-2009, 09:27 AM
I have a laptop with a 90GB hard disk. There is 60GB free and I'm trying to
use the Shrink volume option in Disk Management to make the main partition
smaller. After I want to create an additional partition so I can dual boot.

The problem lies with Shrink Volume. Even though I have 60GB free it's only
offering me the chance to shrink by 14GB.I've turned off system restore and
hibernate. I've also used a number of defrag tools including Auslogic and
SysInternals.

Does anyone know how I can get Shrink volume to recognise the big chunk of
free space I have?
