    Although there isn't an interface specficially designed for it, you can actually view the progress of a volume shrink operation in Windows 7, and cancel a shrink that is in-progress, using the Disk Defragmenter tool.

    Volume shrink can take a long time, especially if you have a very full, or fragmented hard drive. Being able to view the shrink progress can be pretty handy!

    Check out the details in this blog post:

    Hope this is helpful for some of you!

    Happened to stumble across this old thread when searching for a way to view shrink progress and discovered the provided link was dead. You can find the information here:
