I'm trying to shrink my C: partition, and I'm following the advice in this question:
I have the same problem of unmovable files, and I've disabled already System Restore, Pagination, Hibernation... and still can't shrink anything my 350GB C: partition that actually only uses 80GB.
I'm following the Event Viewer method explained in that question, I use the shrink option in the Partition Manager and then check the Event Viewer -> event 259.
That event throws this message:
- The last unmovable file appears to be: \Users\Albert\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows \Temporary Internet Files\0AYu0utzFxpSlQ:cJa3UJYivVxT5eSKOsolvCA:$DATA
- The last cluster of the file is: 0x56f8b5b
- Shrink potential target (LCN address): 0x159fe49
- The NTFS file flags are: ----D
- Shrink phase:
The problem is that when I go to that folder (Temporary Internet Files) there's nothing there (I already deleted them from IE), but I have the folder options to show all hidden and system files.
Is it a super invisible file? If not, why do I get that message in the event viewer?
Any help would be much appreciated!
