    You need to use 'Computer management' which can be found via the start menu, under Administrative Tools but follow the excellent guide that Celestra posted and you can't go far wrong..

    Post back if you need more help...:)

    Hi,

    In answer to your question..Yes, you'll be shrinking 'C' which if you follow what I suggested below, will need to shrunk by 150GB
    250GB you say... Well you could have a 100GB partition for 'C' with 'D' and 'E' having a size of 75GB each?
