Re: Dual-booting: Resizing Windows Partition
BIG +1 on this!! Use ONLY the Win7 Disk Management tool; do NOT use GParted. Don't be surprised if the Win7 tool doesn't let you shrink it much -- it probably won't let you go anywhere near a 50% reduction. If you decide to use Gparted to get around that, you're likely to corrupt Win7.
