HP dc5750 has 750gb hard drive that I am trying to split into two drives. Would like to make C drive around 150 gb and the other drive the rest. When I try to shrink the volume of c drive, it only lets me go to 375gb. Anyway to get it lower to the 150gb?

If you can't go smaller it is likely because it already contains data; delete 225GB of data and then you should be able to get down to 150.

The hard drive only has 70gb on it and that is mostly os and very few programs I use on that computer.

I ended up reinstalling windows over with disks and that got me the extra space in the portioned drive. Thanks for the help.
