Re: [opensuse] 12.2 on a Windows 7 machine

I bought a new laptop for the office
about a year ago. Came with Win7 and a 250GB drive. I expected to be
able to shrink that from within Win7 way down. It refused to shrink
below 160GB.

No idea why.

The why is about "unmovable" files. The more installed RAM, the bigger they are. Turn off paging and hibernation before rebooting to do the shrink and the problem files should be gone or (re)movable, allowing shrinking to a much smaller fraction of the original size.
