    Shrinking of C Drive is Not possible

    windows 8.1

    i have total space of around 220 Gb in C drive which i would like to reduce and transfer the space to other drive. when i tried the 'Shrink' option, it showed available shrink of around 5Gb which reduced the C drive to 215 Gb.

    How to further REDUCE the volume in C drive and Transfer the space to Other Drives?

    Help me out.
