  • Hi,

    It's not recommended to do this often, as it leads to volume fragmentation which can cause problems down the road like LDM record exhaustion which is hard to get out of.

    You can download the shrink-diskpart.zip file from the following location.  This may be updated at a later time and is supplied as-is.

    It has three modes of operation and will prompt to select one during execution.

    R = Report, S = Shrink with confirmation, A = Automatically Shrink all possible volumes:
