Changing Size or Deleting a Striped Volume RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good Evening, 

    I'm trying to shrink an empty striped volume on a Windows 10 Pro N (1909 build) machine. I'm only doing this so I can add 5gb of space to the booting (C) volume. However, I can't seem to delete or shrink this striped volume. Any ideas on this?

  • Hi,

    What happens when you try to shrink the volume? Do you get any error message?

    When you shrink a partition, certain files (for example, the paging file or the shadow copy storage area) cannot be automatically relocated and you cannot decrease the allocated space beyond the point where the unmovable files are located. If the shrink operation fails, check the Application Log for Event 259, which will identify the unmovable file.

    If you need to shrink the partition further, move the paging file to another disk, delete the stored shadow copies, shrink the volume, and then move the paging file back to the disk.

    For more detailed information, please refer to the articles below:
