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

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

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!

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.


Top posting in Usenet threads is considered rude, even for an "MVP"!
