Disk partition

By zach-_- ·
Hello, I have a problem with disk partition, while I'm trying to shrink the partition I can do it only with 10**4 MB (this is System partition), my disk has 240GB space and system takes 47GB so why can I shrink the partition only 10**4MB?

Given only this.

Can't tell why.
1. Did you try other disk partition tools? Look at AOMEI PARTITION APPs.
2. Are you sure you are not trying to resize a partition your PC is using (ie, booted Windows and trying to resize the partition that we are running on.)
3. You left out why you are trying to shrink it. For my typical Linux dual boot and install I let my distro do this and haven't done it manually for over a decade.

1. No but i will try.
2. I want this, because Windows use all my disk space.
3. I want to make dual boot and install Elementary or Debian

Going to have to reveal which Distro.

There are so many distros with Debian now but all the ones I picked up and let's stick to the top 10 at distrowatch.com come with an installer that automates the resizing and installation.

Again, I haven't done this manually for over a decade. There's no need to today.

I'd rather not do it for now, because I don't know if it can't be done from Windows

What does 10**4 mean?

System partition.....do you mean the 'C' partition?

It was 1 0 9 1 4 but idk why this page changed this

Yes I want to change C partition

Just Windows tool. Right click on "this computer", then manage, then expand the storage tab and click "manage disks" and there is an option "reduce volume"

As rproffitt says in his first reply, you can't change the partition Windows is running from in Windows. Do it after booting something else (like your Debian disk or stick).

Man! Dual booting

by itsdigger In reply to 123

you had better stop what you are doing right now and make a back up copy of this hdd/ssd as dual booting can be very tricky.
These guys trained me for a couple of years and I Still Messed Things UP!

Maybe think about running a distro as a persistent flash drive...

I know> shut up Dig....
