this is kinda like my last question about dual-booting as-least it resembles some elements.
i bought a Dell XPS 720 a long time ago. and i'd like to dual-boot the pre-installed vista with XP. iv already done this on my Toshiba Equiem laptop. and it works perfectly. my XPS however is putting up a fight.
i have a 699GB HD with 338GB free space. yet when i go to disk-management and try to partition the drive it says iv only got 35mb free space. through some extensive googling iv found that one of the causes may be pre-installed system files that have been spread through the disk. and i was wondering how do i move these files to one side so i can get more space to partition with. preferably i'd like to partition 50GB. but as i say i'm unsure how to do this.
iv heard about some programs that may move the files for me but in return they will wipe my entire hdd.
this inst something i can afford and would realy like to keep my files. whilst still being able to partition my hdd.
is there anyway to do this?
