Windows Disk Management hangs when I hit Shrink Volume.

Hello,

Windows Disk Management hangs when I hit Shrink Volume.
I have never had this problem before...
Plus this is a new computer, haha.
Any ideas guys?

Thanks in advanced,

Check whether the 'Disk Defragmenter' service is set to 'manual'. If not, set it to manual.

Thank you for the quick reply!
Yes it was on manual. Anything else I should check?

Maybe some .dll is out of wack. Run a sfc /scannow in elevated command prompt. Maybe it can fix it.

Well... I tried that and it found no errors.
Anything else?

In the reliability history/reliability monitor there should be a red X for this event. What does that say - and if there is a 'view technical details', have a look at those too.

Microsoft Management Console stopped responding and closed.

That all that happened today.

What do you think we should do?

Well... that didn't work.

But I did find a fix!

Step 1: right click your partition.
Step 2: Mark as active
Step 3: hit yes.

And done

Thanks,

Hmm, that is a bit strange. But if it worked it is OK.
