WIN7 partition help

Hey guys, i got a macbook pro, i boot camped win7 install on it, so its a 500gb hd, 35gb went to mac osx , i got another 430gb with windows on it right now, i want to shrink it to the following

35gb mac osx
80gb win7
350gb data storage.

im in windows7 right now and try to sthrink the 430 gb drive down but the max i can shrink it to is 200gb, its a new drive and theres only 20gb of spaced use right now for windows7. so there should be 410gb left.

any suggestions?

Use a third party partition tool. Windows cannot move certain files, therefore the limited shrink.

Windows is not very good at partitioning the drives. as said above you should just go for a third party and you should be able to set it to whatever size ya want!
