Solved: Running Disk Defragmenter Has Freed Up Over 30GB Of Free Space!
I was trying to get a 500GB down to 60 and could only get to about 260 with Shrink and hours of turning things off, rebooting, Microsoft’s Defrag and Check Disk. The problem with this is that it will definitely cause your system to not boot anymore unless you follow some very specific steps, because Vista can't handle it. Current: I've got two that I can't even get a blue screen on now. As we collect pictures and programs (and programs themselves collect data), more disk space is consumed unless files are deleted. his comment is here

It says,"contact vendor." Ok, so I did that, going through all the steps. Despite just freeing up 50GB, and having most of 100GB completely unused on my 120GB disk, it doesn't have enough disk space… riiiight. After reading the above comments. Auslogics showed your dreaded yellow clusters at about 50 GB.
Your mileage may vary though. I am new to any laptop. I could call up task manager by CTRL+ALT+DEL but couldn't get a desktop. Inside TreeSize you can simply click on the desired file and either press the Delete key or right click on the file and select Delete.

Voila ! I've run it so I have roughly 60GB free out of 106GB on the hard drive. January 26, 2009 Gino It did not work for me either. I went from having 10GB to 50GB (150GB drive, 89 was used up).
I was then able to take Vista down to a 40 GB partition and could have made it as small as a 30 GB partition. I was able to move system files and thus shrink my Vista partition to approx.

Using Linux to Resize You can also use the gparted live cd to resize your partitions.
I didn't read all of the replies so if it has been mentioned before I apologize. Even though you've partitioned one physical drive into two logical drives and won't gain a speed improvement, you might want to move your paging file to the D: drive so XP I then defragmented the drive again, so as to move the MFT and shrink the partition down to 60 GB. Over the last several days, Ihave cumulatively freed up about 6GBs of space; however, eachtime I take some action, I find that the space getsmysteriously used up and I'm left once
I didn't have most of it. When i try to offline defrag to remove "files that are normally locked by the Windows OS" it says it will perform the operation on the next reboot. The thing is that even though I've followed this guide (including defragmenting with Perfect Disk) I can´t reduce Vista's partition as much as I want. check over here It's been as far as the Philippines (I was doing homework for an Solidworks class via email on vacation in 2007).
Amazing! Vista is still work in progress ….
