    Ok will do... That tutorial had me put that amount in is why I did that. So what number should I put in since it says to "In the Shrink dialog, you will want to enter the amount you want to shrink by, not the new size. " So how much shrinkage is that? Sorry I am clueless when it comes to this sort of stuff LOL

    Shrink the partition by 77000 MB so the partition should be a little bit more than 1 GB in size. Then reboot the computer to make sure everything is working after the shrinkage. Then you can continue to shrink the partition by a couple of megabytes at a time until its 100 MB's in size.

    So you are saying I need to install EASEUS and move that allocated partition over to C? If I don't do anything is that a problem? The laptop is just a back up in case my desktop is Out of order. My daughter just watches youtube and goes on facebook with it as well. Nothing is going to be stored on it.

    Yes exactly.

    No, its not a problem but you will just have less hard drive space on your C partition so if it doesn't bother you then you can leave it be. Its up to you though.
