Windows 7: Resizing two partitions on one disk-what program to use ?

02 Dec 2011   #11

Windows 7 Professional SP1 32-bit

As rraod said, I think you might've just shrunk your partition as much as the system allowed you to the first time around, thus being unable to shrink it further.

I would try it myself right now just to find out for sure - alas, my system partition is encrypted with TrueCrypt and I'd have to decrypt and re-encrypt it, besides my pagefile is all the way at the end of the partition anyway...(talk about a showstopper LOL)

MS Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1

All these partition manipulations and other experiments I normally do on a virtual machine (a test platform) leaving my base system untouched!
