    Hi,

    On my Vista notebook everything has been dumped into one large partition
    which I want to shrink to make room for other partitions. What tool do I
    use to re-size the NTFS file system? Preferably something free.
    Thank you.

    You could try "Partition Wizard Home Edition" (free) from www.minitools.ca
    I have found their software good . Some people prefer "Paragon" software
    see http://www.paragon-software.com/free/

    Gparted is my favourite partition tool, many things are possible with this.
    But always do a backup first whatever option you choose.
