Shrink Windows Filesystem in Winclone 9 or later

You are here:

Note: This option is not needed for WIM-based imaging and should not be used unless block-based imaging is required

When creating a block-based Winclone image, the NTFS filesystem can be shrunk before creating the Winclone image so the image can be restored on small partitions.

  1. “Select Volume” will show any currently attached volume that is NTFS formatted and has Windows installed.
  2. When the “Shrink” button is pressed, the NTFS filesystem will be resized to be slightly larger than the used space on the partition.
