I am using Ideapad z580 with 1 tb hard disk space. I partitioned the C drive using Data management - Shrink Volume.
Total Shrink Volume was displayed as 432 gb. And later I partitioned the 432 volume into 3 partitions of 144 gb each (432/3 = 144). But the size in C drive after partition is displayed as 449 gb which is Non-Shrinkable.
Can you please let me know why I cannot partition the C drive less than 449 gb. (Actually I want to keep the C-drive to 100gb).
Currently my drives are displayed as :
Windows 8_OS (C 449gb
Lenovo (D 24.9 gb
New Volume (F 144 gb
New Volume (G 144gb
New Volume (H 144gb

C partition - I might make a system image backup ... turn off system restore and disable the paging file and run a defrag c: /x which is a consolidating defrag. Then if windows disc management cant give a shrink size I'm happy with... reinable what I stopped and make a restore point and run the free minitools partition wizzard. http://www.partitionwizard.com/free-partition-manager.html I've used it in the past.. works ok here.
