    can't shink parition beyond 202 mb

    I was trying to set up a duel boot with 7 and 10 when I got stuck on the shink partition step. I can only shrink my partition 202 mb even though I have 150 gb free (approx).

    Thank you for your time.

    Your HD is fragmented, you need to run defragger and consolidate all the free spaces before you can shrink it from Windows Disk Management.

    Partition Wizard boot disk will give you all the space you want since System files are not running and therefore immovable.

    Thank you for your help. The solution did work and I was able to get 44 gb out of my hard drive for windows 10.
