Is there a tool to shrink the NTFS boot partition in W2K Pro (down to
more than actual data, of course), preferably from within windows?
Simple and cheap is preferred but simplicity is of higher concern for
I need to do it on a bunch of computers at work. TIA.

I have used 7Tools (Paragon Software) which can be downloaded free for
trial. It comprises Windows and DOS partition managers. With the former,
you can resize (reduce or increase) or move any partition within
Windows. I also heard of BootItNG, free download, but have not used it
personally.

Thanks, BootItNG looks interesting. I also found

http://www.sysresccd.org/

(including http://mlf.linux.rulez.org/mlf/ezaz/ntfsresize.html
which claims to resize NTFS partitions)

Can anybody who has used these tools comment? In particular, any
problems with larger (137G+) partitions?
