    Hi techies,
    I am using windows vista Home premium 32 bit operating system. My
    laptop is hp pavillion dv6700

    Problem: I used perfect disk to get 60 gb of shrink space. I was happy
    about this because without perfect disk i got shrink available as just
    600MB. After this when i use shrink volume in vista for 20Gb out of
    this 60 gb. available vista says. Disk Logical Error "ACCESS
    DENIED".Even i tried reducing the shrink partition to till 5gb. I took
    off the following already - hibernation, pagefile etc.. while doing
    this.

    What next to do? I am stuck here. Please don't suggest to have vista
    reinstall because i dont have vista CD. I need to solve this Access
    Denied problem.
    Even gparted i dont want to use because it needs Vista CD after
    partioning. Thanks in advance to all techies.

    Error : Disk Logical Error ACCESS DENIED
    Solution: not yet solved .... asking help to all techies. before
    writing solution please read problem.Thank you

    ScreenShot: I am attaching exact error screenshot zip here.

    I had a similar problem, and successfully used Easeus Partition
    Manager Home Edition to shrink my Vista system partition. It is free,
    and available from http://www.partition-tool.com/download.htm.

    It had to reboot into a special mode to be able to accomplish the
    task, but it worked fine for me. It did not need a Vista CD.

    Vista won't really run with less than 8gb. Sounds like you've alread
    removed half the system files to get to your 5gb. You'll have to do
    factory re-install (Look up you Laptop Manual for how to do this) an
    try to research things before you start deleting stuff

  5. Wrong answer here.

    The O/P now has logical disk errors. They were either there before or may
    have been caused by PerfectDisk. We don't know. But, any decent partition
    manager will NOT allow a partition to be resized or altered if these errors
    are present. It this were allowed a person could lose everything on the
    partition/drive.

    Or, the OP misreported the error message, and actually got "Logical
    Disk Manager, Access is denied", which is the standard uselessly
    uninformative error message you get when Vista's shrink volume can't
    shrink a volume. Since his attached screenshot didn't come through to
    those of us following this group via nntp, I can't say for sure, but
    the fractured writing style of the OP leads me to believe this might
    be the case. ;)

  7. Old rules die hard, but they do die.

    Why should a person read through the posts of 4-5 other individuals to see
    the latest answer (on the bottom) - just because people who demand that
    others abide by usenet outdates rules refuse to trim the post before they
    answer.

    I don't have to read the same answers to the post, over and over yet again,
    because those who would like bottom posting REFUSE to trim because they are
    lazy.

    I top post. My answer is right there - in your face. You don't have to read
    through the others YET AGAIN.

    Get over your etiquette fetish!

    acess is denied?????

    while trying to shrink basic drive??

    well, it did go through, a black partition means unused partition was
    created, remember
    :-??
    after that you rejoined the shrink volume again with base drive. and
    then you have this error.
    i would say if you can't fix it with softwares etc. try recovery, oh
    and have you tried system restore it might help. then after that just
    transfer your data, mostly, movies, songs etc :)) into a HDD and hit
    that F9/ F10 button.



    you can try Dcomcnfg too. start this service. :-?? and [-o<
