    Hello there
    I am attempting to shrink my C:/ drive in order to make another partition for Linux Mint.
    When I try to shrink the drive in Disk Management, only about 7gb are shrunk, while I have 50gb of free space on that drive, and I even defragmented it. I unfortunately do not have another hard drive I can shrink instead.
    I understand that it might not be the best idea to shrink your C:/ drive, but 7gb is just ridiculous!

    Thanks,
    NaartjieDude
