WIN7 partition help

Hey guys, i got a macbook pro, i boot camped Windows 7 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 Windows 7
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.

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!
