I created a Raid 5 volume using 4 500GB disks. I installed Windows 7 64bit and it didn't give me an option to size the partition/allocate size. Might of missed it. Anyway I have a 1.3 TB partition that I want to split up, because that is how I like it. The windows disk management utility will only let you shrink it in half.
I was going to use Partition Wizard but after downloading, burning, and booting into the ISO it didn't see the raid volume correctly.
This doesn't see the Raid Array either, it shows 4 seperate disks Partedmagic.com
I thought I would be able to try out free trial off Acronis, but it wouldn't let me do anything at all, because it was a demo version. Why offer free trial that can't do anything. Stupid! I might have bought it, but they pissed me off, so now I will not.
So has anyone successfully shrank a Windows 7 Boot partition (x64) with free tools besides the windows disk management utility?
UPDATE: I went back and started over, but I still couldn't do what I wanted with the partitioning and such when doing the install from the DVD. So I used the information found Here to setup my partitions before doing the installation for the 3rd time. All I can say is be careful with your commands like "clean" :)
One last tip - always disconnect your backup drive before screwing around like this!
