I'm trying to dual boot Vista 64bit with Ubuntu (linux) but I can't seem to shrink my Vista partition.

When I go to disk management It's not showing any unallocated space on my C drive, despite having around 270GB free...
Also, when I go to shrink the drive it's showing 0MB free space to shrink.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for the replies.

Yes, it did go through the querying process. I eventually tried using GParted and it said there was a problem with the file system and it couldn't be resized.

In the end I formatted the partition and it's all working fine now. I have no idea what caused it.
