What I am trying to accomplish is to shrink my C drive by 50 GB and make that 50 GB into a new partition to install windows 8 on.
In Disk Management it shows I have Disk 0 with 4 partitions :
- SYSTEM (199 MB)
- C (909 GB)
- Recovery (D) (21 GB)
- HP_TOOLS (102 MB).
(Unfortunately I cant include the picture because I dont have 10 rep on this site).
And the issue I have is that when I right click on C to shrink the partition it says that the shrink space available is only 297 MB, when at the top of the screen it indicates that C has 472 GB of free space. Why is it not allowing me to shrink more than 297 MB?
