    Default Cannot resize partition (acces denied)

    Hello,
    Here's my problem:
    I try to resize my partition (the c disk it's called in this case) which is
    around 1,4 TB larrge.
    I use around maybe 200 GB of it for both windows vista ultimate and my
    files.
    I used to be able to just resize the partition with the vista build in tool
    for that.
    Now suddenly i get the message acces denied.
    Before that i got messages like : you are able to resize this certain
    amount, but when i would then do that i would also get the message acces
    denied (this time, it was acces denied to logic disk).
    I alreay reduced virtual memory and removed older systemrecoverypoints etc
    for making extra space but there's space enough as mentioned above.

    I hope somebody has understanding why this can happen? (and hopefully
    understanding how to solve it?)

    You cannot use the vista tools to partition the boot drive partition--only
    the other partitions on the drive. Makes sense. Vista cannot partition
    itself.

    You should be able "shrink" the OS drive via Disk Management -
    START | type diskmgmt.msc into the start box

    Left click 1x on the OS drive rectangular box. Right-click on it and
    select "shrink".

    Regards. . .

    i'll give that one more try but tried that already, it already says in the
    list then by the way that there's no free space (in the listing of the
    disks), was not able to schrink anything..

    all your help didnot work..
    but, i found EASEUS partition manager (freeware for home use) which was able
    to do the trick.

    but still my system malfuntions, if i'd go to the management console and go
    to the screen where to resize/epand, create partions etc, it's impossible to
    assig non used space to a partion..anymody suggestions for that?
    donot think so, wiill try to fix it with the program or reinstall vista.

    Are you saying that EASEUS can't do it?

    You can find a complete analysis and solution for this problem on How To Geek:
    Working Around Windows Vista's "Shrink Volume" Inadequacy Problems :: the How-To Geek
    I used Perfect Disk 2008 together with these instructions, and was able to create a huge new partition on my Vista disk.

    I recommend Paragon Partition Manager... but it isn't freeware
