Hi techies,
I am using windows vista Home premium 32 bit operating system. My laptop is hp pavillion dv6700

Problem: I used perfect disk to get 60 gb of shrink space. I was happy about this because without perfect disk i got shrink available as just 600MB. After this when i use shrink volume in vista for 20Gb out of this 60 gb. available vista says. Disk Logical Error "ACCESS DENIED".Even i tried reducing the shrink partition to till 5gb. I took off the following already - hibernation, pagefile etc.. while doing this.

What next to do? I am stuck here. Please don't suggest to have vista reinstall because i dont have vista CD. I need to solve this Access Denied problem.
Even gparted i dont want to use because it needs Vista CD after partioning. Thanks in advance to all techies.

Hey guys,

I got solution for this! what i did is i used perfect Disk to CONSOLIDATE FREE SPACE so that all the available free space will be accumulated at the end of the disk rather than a mess up. After this when i tried shrink volume NO ACCESS DENIED message any more for shrink volume in vista. Guys it took me 6 hours to figure out.
