How did you try to shrink the partition? What program did you use?

Hi Danish Ahmad,

The Windows partition sizing utility cannot move immovable files, so you're stuck with the minimum 455 GB. The solution is to puchase Partition Magic.

By the way, perform a Google search for "Windows 8 455 GB" and you'll see that's the magic number.
