    Windows 10: cannot shrink volume (D drive)


    Hi all,

    I am trying to dual-boot Ubuntu and Windows 10 on my computer. I currently have Windows 10 installed and am trying to partition(split) my D drive to create a new drive for Ubuntu. My D drive currently has 100GB of free space. However, in Disk Management, only 4.85GB is showing up as "available shrink space." Therefore, I cannot make a new drive big enough to run Ubuntu on. Is there any way of getting around this? It might be helpful to know windows says "cannot shrink volume beyond the point where any removable files are located." The defragment and optimization tool doesn't help, I pressed "optimized" but nothing changes

    Best, Kevin

    :)

  2. I AM UNABLE TO EXPAND VOLUME OF C DRIVE FROM UNALLOCATED PARTITION

    I CREATED AN UNALLOCATED PARTITION BY SHRINKING VOLUME OF D DRIVE

    AND NOW I CANNOT ALLOCATE THIS UNALLOCATED VOLUME TO EXPAND VOLUME OF C DRIVE OR ANY OTHER DRIVE

    BUT THIS UNALLOCATED VOLUME CAN BE REALLOCATED TO D DRIVE BY EXPANDING ITS VOLUME. PLEASE HELP

    HOW CAN I DO IT?

    AND IF IT IS NOT POSSIBLE THEN WHAT IS THE REASON BEHIND IT?
