Atm I have 500GB array from two 250GB in raid0 with Vista on it... its using up about 90GB of space (leaving around 375GB free) and I want to shrink the partition to say 100GB (see below). Then I want to reformat the unallocated space (~350GB) to be used by my Windows 7 install on my SSD. I know you can use the Disk Management in device manager to do all this but I want the 350GB free space partition to be at the front of the disk (the fastest) and have the old 100GB Vista partition right at the end (in the slowest part I guess, which its ok cos I will rarely boot into it). Is this possible?
About above... just wondering when I shrink the partition to 100GB even though it is only using 90GB is 10GB a good enough buffer for windows to not spaz out? Or is it even too much can I get away with just 2-3GB buffer... I wont be installing or writing anything new to it. It will be mainly just for reading data and booting.
