Thread: How to resize my partition while vista says it has no space but there's space enough

    Default how to resize my partition while vista says it has no space but there's space enough

    I have a partiotn with vista ultimae on it, it's aroun1,3 TB big.
    It still has around 700 GB free space.
    I already reduced the virtiual memory size to 200 mb to make sure that
    windows finds space but no..
    It keeps on saying there is 0 space to use (and then suggest to have a look
    at the virtual memory or at the moment'recordings'(i think with that is
    meant systemreplacement, the replacepoints.
    Should i remove those systemreplacepoints and where i they located?
    And what about this: i just read that systemreplacement ony works with a
    disk of at leas 1 GB, is that true?

    Thanks for all your help,

    Hi,

    Run diskmgmt.msc - how much free (unpartitioned) space is available on the
    drive? What steps are you taking to expand your system volume?

    Unlock virtual memory, restricting it is pointless and possibly detrimental
    to system performance. Space occupied by vm and system restore is on your
    existing volume and would have nothing to do with an issue with expanding
    the volume.

    No.

    Ok,
    now, after having added the free space i already had to the c-C didsk,
    i am now not at all able to resize the cdisk...!? The message: acces denied.
    (first by the way i got the message logic station acces denied, didnot
    understand that as i never created a logic station..) but now i just get:
    Acces Denied..

    This means i have now 1 partition (C) of around 1,4 TB.
    And vista cannot make it some smaller..

    There must be a failure somewhere and i like to know where ofcourse and how
    to solve it, microsoft must have a solution for this?

    Hi Jerry. . .

    Please run a Vista system health report along w/ msinfo32 and let's see
    if this can be figured out.

    *Perfmon (Health report):*
    START | type cmd.exe into the start search box | RIGHT-click on cmd.exe
    above | select Run as Administrator | the cmd/DOS screen will appear -
    type the following:

    *perfmon /report*
    It will take 60 seconds and the output will appear in an IE7 browser.
    Please save as an HTM or HTML file - you'll see the default file
    extension when you go to save it.

    *msinfo32*
    START | type msinfo32 & hit enter - save it as an NFO file (default)

    Zip both up and attach to your next post.

    Can you also get a screenshot of Disk Management, please?
    START | type *diskmgmt.msc* - hit enter | be sure to expand screen so
    all can be seen

    Thanks.

    Regards. . .

    jcgriff2

    Sorry,

    The second link in my last post doesnot work, to make it work i did this:
    go to:
    http://www.trancedidge.com/tmp/perfmon_report.nfo

    and then: )!) rename/change the nfo into html, then you have the real
    perfmon_report.html

    Why don't you organize your thoughts and just start over with a new
    thread. This one is a PITA to try to read and comprehend.
