Hi, welcome to the forums

You may want to try the following...

1, Open 'Disk Cleanup' (right-click & Run as Administrator). Click ok on C: (if applicable)
2, Under the 'More Options' tab click 'Clean up' in the System Restore and Shadow Copies section

then run a defrag and try the disk management again

I've seen many occasions where Restore Points can take up 10's of GB on some systems

The reason for your dilemma is that the MFT (master file table) landed way up on your partition. Disk Management cannot move that whilst the partition is active. Use the bootable CD of the program that Greg recommended - because when you boot from that CD, all partitions are inactive and PW can move the MFT.
