Hi!

I am trying to increase the size of C:/ and decrease the size of E:/ on my master drive (Drive 1).
Drive 1 is divided in two partitions C:/ (15 GB) and E:/ (60 GB)
Basically I want about 10 GB moved from E:/ to C:/

I have about 4,5 GB space free on C:/ and 31 GB free on E:/

In spite of this, Partition Magic is giving me a 506 error (not enough free space on partition to shrink).

Not quite sure what I am doing wrong and how to solve it.
Any help would be appreciated !!

Thanks !!
Michael

Maybe this is not the right forum to ask for help.

I'll try and find out if Norton (Partition Magic) has a users forum, and if I can find an answer to my problem, then post it back here as help to others.

Mike.
