I'm running Windows 7, with around 200gb of free space, according to my system properties. I'm trying to create a 30gb partition on which I'll install Ubuntu, but alas, I've hit a snag in shrinking the Windows partition. I go to the drive management window, choose the shrink the C drive, and the system comes back and says there's no space at all to shrink. Now, I looked all over the place online, I tried turning off system restore, hibernation, and the paging file, to no avail. I completely defragmented my hard drive using PerfectDisk (which is capable of moving "immovable" system files), and it says I still have no available space to shrink my drive. Any ideas?
