    I got a new Dell Win7 computer with 640 GB hard drive.
    But free space for C-Partition in the new computer is now 555gb.
    For my XP computers, the size of C-partition is about 60 GB.
    So I tried to shrink 555 gb size to 60 gb in the Disk Managment.
    I could not shrink to that low but only allowed to to 296 GB (285 gb for the rest of unallocated space).
    I wonder why I could not shrink below 296 GB (i.e., to 60 gb).
    Could someone suggest me how to go around it? Thanks. Hummer
  2. Why do you want to shrink that partition?
