Cant Shrink larger recovery point volumes. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have many larger volumes (most of in tera bytes) which have enough free space. DPM is running on low space in 30TB storage pool so I want to take back free space by shrinking. As you can see, more than 900 GB space is free on RC volume and its not allowing me to shrink. 

    I know this error is coming due to random location of data on volume, this need defragmentation and after that I can shrink. 

    So I mounted this volume as T: drive and fragmenting this but its stuck on 24% from last two days. Not going forward. 

    How could I reclaim that space. Its about 20 volumes I am having problem with.
