Cannot Create New drive And Shrink C Drive As Desired

» I want to shrink C drive from 421GB into 30GB and want to make at least 3 more drives. i also want to have linux in D drive. so when i want to shrink C drive then it shows Size of available shrink space 212653 MB and Total size after shrink 219284MB, which I dont want. When i tried to create a new simple volume the following error comes: You cannot create a new volume in this unallocated space because the disk already contains maximum number of partitions. What can i do ??

» The exe file runs programs, it is thus one of the most useful types of files, but this also makes it potentially harmful. It can be used as a carrier for viruses(Worm:Win32/Vexral.A) or other malicious programs. If one clicks on a malicious exe file, over the next several hours or days the computer might become unstable. Often the user does not relate the problem back to the cause and attributes it to other factors, such as the need to defragment or replace a disk. Personal information or password keystrokes might be handed over to an unknown website without knowledge of the user, or the machine might delete its own files and crash altogether. Any of these scenarios and more can be set in motion by simply clicking on a 'bad' exe file.

Because of the potential harm, when downloading any exe file, it's a good idea to scan it with a reputable virus scanner before clicking on it. Exe files are generally not meant to be edited, and changing an exe's file size will render it inoperable. It is better to defend than being offended. Experts recommend keeping virus checkers up to date and deleting email from unknown sources. If you receive an exe file from someone you trust, scan it first before clicking on it. Even files that appear to be coming from reputable sources can be used maliciously by third parties without the source's knowledge.

All in all, it is unavoidable to experience an exe file error. When you run an .exe file on a Windows based computer, the file may start a different program. Additionally, the icon for the .exe file may not appear as expected. You may also receive additional errors from the .exe file or from the program that starts, so on and so forth.

For all the .exe file related problems caused by adware, worms, viruses, Trojan, spyware and malware, such as slow pc, high usage of CPU/memory, system crashes and so on, DLL Suite will be the best solution for you to troubleshoot and remove the exe virus infection automatically.

If you are saying you want to shrink C to 30gb, that is far too small, the sys wont function, I wouldn't recommend anything less than 100gb -150gb. And if you ever need to use your laptop recovery disks that will destroy any partitions you create.

  2. BRANDON MAYES replied on March 13, 2013: » windows will use as much space as your video card and installed ram has .

    if you move it to another drive or partition other than the windows partition . you can then shrink it by that much.

    i have 32 plus 2 gb`s for video card in my pc and had to move them to shrink to fit win7 on ssd .

  3. LUIS GALLARDO replied on March 14, 2013: » The existence of files spread out across the drive will limit the amount by which you can shrink the volume. You can defrag to reduce this but there will still be immovable files that will create a limit for you.

    I think you will have to decide on a complete reinstallation to resolve matters. During the installation, choose the option to partition the disk & set it to create a partition that is no less than 70GB. You can then use the rest for a user data files partition.

    You will have some facility for backing up the PC maker's factory image partition to DVD or USB. Resolve this before you start anything as you will destroy this partition during the reinstallation and might also do so just trying to move partitions around.

  4. WILLIAM BLOWERS replied on March 15, 2013: » 70GB - that is what I have. Others, as you have seen, say that is too small and that at least 100GB is required. Windows uses a lot of hard drive space as temporary working space so anything below 70-100GB might inhibit your system. Defrag, just for example, uses 25% of the disk space to work in.

    System image - any image you made before partitioning will try to restore to a drive that is at least as big as the one it was made on. One made on a larger drive will overwrite your repartitioning. Only images you make after the repartitioning can be used successfully.

FREDERICK MEDEIROS replied on March 16, 2013: » Your windows is already 21 gb, the size that windows itself is has nothing to do with speed. moving the page file and other stuff to other partitions won`t speed things up unless you have another hard drive or an ssd or a flash usb stick ..usb sticks are small in size, fast, and would give you more of the space you are trying to get with partitions.
