Hi Members,

Can anyone share the download link for Perfect Disk or any other recom.

@karlsnooks
Yep i have received excellent and working solutions. But i guess my HDD has some problem, becoz it not ready to allow me partition it.

Hope some other software would help me. And that would also not crash my existing windows 7 OS.

Thanks to all the members,
Prateek Agarwal

Minitool partition wizard detecting that file system of the partition have errors. Please use "Check file system" function to fix it first.
Did you check the File System using PW CD as requested?

Try booting the Win7 DVD, press Shift F10 at first screen to open a Command Line, run Disk Check

Then run the HD maker's bootable diag/repair full CD scan: Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities (Storage) - TACKtech Corp.

But when i tried doing it using diskmgmt.msc it show me only 1008MB available though i have 185 GB of free Space. How do i solve this issue. I am not able to see the actual free space in the diskmanagement application.

I even tried to do using the cmd prompt but was unsuccesful to do it.

Can any one guide me how to resolve this issue and shrink my drive.

Before you create partition defrag your drive with a decent degragger
if you use degraggler look where disk space is being used, if use blocks are near the end of drive your partition can only be th remaining size after last use block

Hello? I asked you if you completed the File System check which Partition Wizard asked you to do.

You were already using the best partitioning tool for Win7 which is free Partition Wizard. It prompted you to check file system which is on the same menu as Resizing operation you were trying.

I also gave you information how to run Disk Check and HD diag/repair scan which will further clear the HD.

Why would you ask for help here and then completely ignore the advice given?

@ gaz

I did defrag before doing the partition using the one Windows 7 provides. And its a scheduled process so it starts every wednesday.

@ gregrocker

I tried looking for the option of File System check in the left menu but couldnt find it.

and about Disk Check and HD diag/repair. The One says i need windows 7 bootable Cd but i never got the CD. I just had a preinstalled windows when i purchased the lappy.

and ya, sorry but i didn't ignore the advice, I tried looking up but was unsuccesful to get those option so didnt wanna take more chances and crash my system.
