    Shrinking a volume

    Hi tfd3

    Close Disk Management

    Click your Start Button, then just type cmd

    From the resulting list, right click Command Prompt and choose 'Run as Administrator'

    Paste this command and hit Enter:

    diskpart

    Paste this command and hit Enter:

    list volume

    (note down the number of the Volume you intend to shrink)

    Paste this command and hit Enter (replace x with correct volume number)

    select volume x

    extend filesystem

    When that completes, close Command Prompt and try shrinking that partition again in Disk Management

    Shrinking a volume

    Hi, Dave. I followed your instructions. All seemed to go well, but Disk Management still reports "The parameter is incorrect" when I try to shrink the volume.

    Shrinking a volume

    Thanks, Stefano. At your suggestion I did a Defragmentation on the drive I want to shrink. That took almost a day on a 1 TB drive. The drive is now 0% fragmented. But still I'm getting "wrong perameter" when I try to shrink the volume. Here's a screenshot
    of the dialog window for shrinking the drive:

    The amount of space I last put in to shrink was 50012. Any idea why that didn't work?
