    Unable to shrink the C drive beyond 455 GB

    I was trying to partition my 1 TB hard drive in new windows 10 laptop from HP by using disk management tool . I would like to keep the following partition sizes:

    C Drive : 200 GB

    D Drive : 400 GB

    E Drive : 300 GB

    However I am unable to proceed as the shrink cannot be beyond 50% and it doesn't allow Volume C to be less than 455 GB.

    Will I be able to successfully shrink it to 200 GB in c drive and does it have any disadvantages doing so?

  3. undo partition shrink

    Hi,

    If you accidentally shrink the volume of your SSD partition, there is an option to extend the volume as well. To extend the volume of your SSD partition, follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + X on your keyboard and select Disk Management.
    • Right-click the partition that you want to expand and click Extend Volume.
    • Select the amount of space that you want to extend.

    Keep us in the loop with the result.

    SHRINK C VOLUME TO SMALLER CAPACITY

    Hello microsoft community,

    I would like to shrink my 1TB C drive which has windows 10 installed on it. I have 2 questions

    Q 1. if i do shrink the volume to what windows allows which is around 500GB , will that effect system reset or restore in case the system crashes.

    Q2. there are various programs available like easeus partition manager which can shrink the C drive to much smaller size. is it advisable to use such programs? i am worried if i shrink the volume to below the recommended size of 500 GB my system may not
    reset or restore in case of a crash.

    i would appreciate if some one can help as i am not very tech savvy.
