Getting error message "there is not enough space on disk" when trying to shrink volume of C drive in Disk Management app?


I have a screenshot of the problem shown here: View: https://imgur.com/a/945qMrP


I have 241 GB of free space on my SSD C drive. I'm trying to partition 50 GB so that I can install Ubuntu onto it but it gives me the error message as shown in the screenshot that I've provided.

As a test I tried to partition a 1GB drive by shrinking a volume on my C drive and it worked fine.
I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong in regards to partitioning the 50GB of space? Any help would be appreciated!
