DDS10.0 build 2,117. XP Home. The hard drive has 2 - partitions, OperatingSystem C: 149GB & NTFS 7.813MB. I understand that the 7.813 is usual & necessary. (By the way, the 7.813 is itself a Logical Partition. Should it be?). I have tried to reduce C: to 20GB then create a 129GB partition from the Unallocated space. DDS asks for a Reboot after Committing. The computer reboots, during which DSS is active, but the operations have not been carried out. I still have the 149GB partition C:. Is it not possible to perform the desired change? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
