I want to shrink the free space on my grandson's new Toshiba laptop in order to form a partition for data files. When I attempted to shrink the free space through Computer Management the program shows 303,743 MB free space before shrinking and the available size available as 3041 MB. That's not worth bothering with. I attempted to try this using Acronis Disk Director 10 (Vista compatible) but that program also balked at partitioning. I disabled the paging file thinking it may have been unmovable and placed near the outside of the hard disk but that didn't change anything. What could be blocking the use of all this free space? Toshiba's web site is of no help on this. I also want to do the same thing to my granddaughter's new Toshiba (both are of the same model A305D-S6835). This is the first time I've ever encountered a problem using Acronis Disk Director -- it's always been a solid performer in past instances. Would appreciate any wisdom offered.
