Re: Shrink volume problem

Hve you tried running chkdsk on it?

Re: Shrink volume problem

To run check disk, you can press Windows + R and then type CMD to open an elevated command prompt.

then type "chkdsk /f driveletter:". If the partition that you are having problem shrinking is D: drive, then you should type in "chkdsk /f D:".  

You can also run "chkdsk /r D:". by the way, /f is for fix and /r for recovery.

 

After that, you should be able to shrink volume in Disk Management.

I think the syntax is chkdsk C: /r or chkdsk C: /f...drive letter then switch command. ../r = repair or /f = fix.
