Remember , if you have important data in C drive take a backup. Delete some unnecessary files and deframent drive. You the resizing too whatever it is only after that. Incase it gives a warning of data loss, never proceed.
I have 2 partitions "C drive" 287GB which has Vista + around 120gb for data
"D drive" 10gb of recovery
Now i want to partition that 287GB into 7gb + 80gb + 200gb without losing the data
want to have ubuntu on the 7gb partition vista on 80gb partion and the rest with data... what to do....cant i do without losing the 120gb of data???
In that case first defragment C. This makes the files spread over the disk to organized and swept to one area and not scattered around. Then resize C to around 140 GB. Create the 7 GB partition for ubuntu + its swap. Create the rest as 133 GB partition. Move the data from C to new 133 GB partiton. Then you will have enough free space in C. Then resize C to your desired size and increase the size of the 133 GB partition to use that space.
It is recommended that you take back up important files.Partition resizing is risky esp C.
