    SHRINK C VOLUME TO SMALLER CAPACITY

    I have the same issue. I have a brand new HP Envy 17t laptop and have put no files or apps on it. I tried to use Disk Management to shrink the C: system volume but it would only allow 50% shrink. I moved the pagefile.sys and swapfile.sys to another physical
    drive, E:, but this made no difference. I can still only shrink the C: volume to 50%.

    Perhaps the only solution is to use a third-party partition editor like easeus or mini Partition Editor.

    If you have any other suggestions, let me know.

    Thanks!

  3. Can't shrink the volume of the C drive.


    Shrinking volume of c drive 6e3e03aa-44cc-4e14-9d75-e2ef3ac6dc15.png
    Hi.
    I just reset my PC. I've 688.9GB of space in my C drive and 207 in D drive. (I haven't installed anything yet). Starting off, I just wanted to create another partition. But I can't shrink the volume of my C drive. It says 0MB of size available in shrink space.
    Could someone please tell me how to fix this?
