Dear All,

I have HP Pavilion DV6 Laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium.
The Partition size of C:\ Driver was 400GB, So i shrink the volume now its 350 GB am unable to shrink it further because of some unmoveable system files.Please suggest some third party tool for this.

Secondly, i have taken system image of C:\ Drive, Now, if i resize the C:\ Partion will that image work or not.

Your suggestions will be highly appreciated....

Thanks and regards

You can just backup the image on a DVD or a flashdisk, otherwise you may loose that file or even the OS. You can use partition magic for splitting the drive as you want

You can resize the partitions with windows 7 too .

Like mip show there is many programs that do the job great but you need to be carefull and backup files,
You can create copy the os and files to the vhd .

You can create the virtual vhd and backup it that way .

You can even add to the windows that vhd partition and work with it.

Good luck
