Hi AShk_01,

 

Any reason on why you want to shrink to 100 GB?

 

You will eventually have low drive space issues on that drive.

 

I would not advise shrinking your system drive below 500GB. I am running Win 8.1 with no HP bloatware and very few new programs installed. Current drive C usage is 87.5 GB!

 

What disk management tool are you using?

 

Here are some third party free offerings:

 

EaseUS

 

Mini Tool

 

AOMEI

 

Paragon

 

 

Jaco

Please give a" Kudos" if advice received is relevant or" Accept as Solution" if your problem has been solved.

Hi 

I donot suggest to use any 3rd party tool for that when we can do it by making some changes like disabling pagination, system restore and hibernation.

 

Anyways thanks for you response.
