Tips; How to shrink a simple volume, basic volume and a spanned volume on a Windows 7 Disk

In order to manage the partitions and volumes, the Windows 7 Disk Management tool offers you a simple interface. In this article, let’s have an easy way to shrink a volume to free up space to create a new partition on our hard drive.

Follow the following steps to shrink a basic volume, simple volume or a spanned volume:
1.    It is required to type diskmgmt.msc at an elevated command prompt to open the Disk Management console.
2.    Then, you can right click the volume that you wish to shrink and then click on the Shrink Volume option.
3.    After that, in the field provided in the Shrink dialog box, it is required to enter the amount of the space by which to shrink the disk.
You can have the following information from the shrink dialog box.


Total Size Before Shrink In MB Lists the total capacity of the volume in MB. This is the formatted size of the volume.
Size Of Available Shrink Space In MB Lists the maximum amount by which you can shrink the volume. This doesn’t represent the total amount of free space on the volume; rather, it represents the amount of space that can be removed, not including any data reserved for the master file table, volume snapshots, page files, and temporary files.
Enter The Amount of Space To Shrink In MB Lists the total amount of space that will be removed from the volume. The initial value defaults to the maximum amount of space that can be removed from the volume. For optimal drive performance, you should ensure that the volume has at least 10 percent of free space after the shrink operation.
Total Size After Shrink In MB Lists what the total capacity of the volume in MB will be after you shrink the volume. This is the new formatted size of the volume.
4.    Now, it is required to click Shrink. That’s it..!!

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications.

The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou…
