Window 7 may be able to shrink the current drive that far.

Why do you want to do that?

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

Have you already created a backup set of disks for that laptop? Changing the partitions may prevent the restore partition from working properly.

So you want to have a total of three partitions, including the 16GB restore partition?

step 1, defrag partition C;
step 2, open system restore and make a backup image (just in case)
step 3, right click my computer/manage/disk manager right click on your c: drive and choose shrink, choose your size and go for it
Step 4, right click on the new unallocated space and choose new partition..give it a name and a letter..

Bingo that should do it...do not under any circumstances touch the 16gb recovery drive..

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....

What will you do when the entire drive goes out? Or your laptop is lost or stolen?

There is no substitute for secure backups. IMO optical disks are the most reliable form and can be easily and cheaply duplicated, once made.

Nothing wrong with your plan as long as you also backup elsewhere.
