    When I chose shrink, Disk management scanned for shrink space available for 'C:' and finally produced aroung 573GB for 'C:'.How could i manage to reduce it to 300GB.

    I have uploaded the screenshot of the Disk Management window.
    I need to split C: into two volumes. I will monitor it myself.
    Thank you for Help ,theog.

    Can I offer a suggestion?
    Get a 32gb USB stick and go to hp recovery manager and copy the recovery partition to the stick.

    I too have a brand new Hp dv7 and was able to install windows on a brand new (formatted) SSD hard drive with nothing but my recovery USB.

    Another thing I really like about the HP recovery manager I that you can restore the system from a "minimalized image"
    Basically go back to scratch with only the operating system and drivers.
    No factory installed "bloat ware"

    Hope this helps

    No problems. What I'm saying is that I reinstalled windows on a formatted hard drive with the recovery stick. So it does apply. There was no hard drive in my machine other then the brand new SSD.

    MAKE YOUR RECOVERY MEDIA !!
