Thanks MilesAhead, CCleaner removed the IE index.dat file. This did make a few more gigs of space available for shrinking. Now I have a Windows Search file that is not movable.
Thanks everyone for the great advice but I think I'm going to just look at some cloning software. It might just be easier in the long run. I just want to transfer the operating system to a smaller hard drive.
